  1. I see, it is the ENERGY REQUIRED TO CHANGE THE VELOCITY, not the OVERALL ENERGY CHANGE...
  2. In the following diagram, a force F acts on a cart in motion on a frictionless surface. The initial and final velocities of each cart are shown. Rank the energy required to change each cart's velocity from greatest to least. A: Weighs 2 kg, 5 m/s to 2 m/s - Change in KE = 1/2*2*(2*2-5*5) J = -21 J B: Weighs 3 kg, 3 m/s to -3 m/s - Change in KE = 1/2*3*(3*3-(-3)*(-3)) J = 0 J C: Weighs 5 kg, 5 m/s to 6 m/s - Change in KE = 1/2*5*(6*6-5*5) J = 27.5 J D: Weighs 4 kg, -1 m/s to 2 m/s - Change in KE = 1/2*4*(2*2-(-1)*(-1)) J = 6 J The answer says that the ranking is C, B, A, D, which doesn't make any sense to me given the calculations I made. Can someone please explain what I did wrong, or clarify the question?
