Kinetic energy depends on speed and mass of the vehicle. If we twice the mass double will be the K.E If we twice the velocity 4 times will be the K.E K.E= mass x squared velocity / 2 Distance= velocity x time Therefore, stopping distance is directly proportional to mass, directly proportional to the square of velocity and inversely proportional to stopping force.
