# The quantity dE/dv, the rate of increase of energy with speed, is the amount of additional energy a moving object needs per increase in speed.a. kg truck is traveling at . How much additional energy is needed to increase its speed by ? b. rocket is traveling at. How much additional energy is needed to increase its speed by?

a. energy is needed to increase its speed by .

b. energy is needed to increase its speed by

See the step by step solution

## Part (a) step 1: Given Information

We need to find the additional energy needed to increase its speed by in which his truck is traveling at .

## Part (a) step 2: Simplify

Consider

Here the speed is not relativistic

(Substitute values in the equation )

## Part (b) step 1: Given Information

We need to find the additional energy needed to increase its speed by in witch rocket is traveling at .

## Part (b) step 2: Simplify

Here the speed is definitely():
