Step 1

The change in kinetic energy depends only on mass of car , its initial and final velocities. It is independent of time taken for change in velocity. So, the statement is true.

Step 2

According to work-energy theorem, the change in kinetic energy equals the work done. Since the energy is independent of time, work done is also not related to time. Thus, the statement is correct.

Step 3

Amount of fuel burned is proportional to working time of engine. As engine works for mo...
