The difference is the mass of the moving object:

ocean liner some 10.000 to: yacht some 10 to

Theory:

W kin = kinetic energy

m = mass

v = velocity

W kin = 1/2 * m * v²

So the yacht would have to travel approx. 316 times faster than the ocean liner (when at 10 knots per hour) to have the same kinetic energy.

Q: Why does an ocean liner traveling at 100km per hour would have more kinetic energy than a yacht traveling at the same velocity.?

KE = 1/2 mass *velocity squared A direct relationship. More mass, and a truck has more mass, and the more kinetic energy if velocities are held equal.

Velocity is direction and speed so the vehicle do not have the same velocity

300km in 3 hours = 100km per hour

Yes. Velocity is a vector and therefore requires magnitude and direction: Magnitude: 100 kph Direction: North

It takes 7.8 minutes to travel 13km at 100km/h

It wont be accelerating at all, its in the process of stopping you ignorant sh it

100km=62.14 miles.

It takes 7.8 minutes to travel 13km at 100km/h

175km to the nearest 100km is 200km

100km is a distance, not a measurement of time. (kilometres)

65mph is faster (100km/h = 62.1mph).
