Does a larger net force always produce a larger change in kinetic energy than a smaller net force? Explain.

To determine
Change in kinetic energy

Explanation

Change in kinetic energy can be explained by the concept of force, work done and kinetic energy.

Force: A force is a physical quantity which changes or tends to change the state of rest or of uniform motion of a body.

Work done:

The work done by a force is the product of the force and the distance moved in the same direction.

Work = Force × displacement (I)

Kinetic energy: The work that an object can do because of its motion. The kinetic energy (K.E.) of the object is,

K.E=12mv2 (II)
