Expert Answer

Step 1

Kinetic energy is related to the motion of the object. Kinetic energy is proportional to square of velocity of the object. The motion of the object is dependent upon the frame of reference of the observer.

Step 2

For example, an object which is at rest on the ship which moves with a constant velocity appears to be in rest for a person inside it...
