Energy is the currency of transformation. All systems remain the same unless energy is exchanged between one part and another. Learn here about the energy associated with movement.

Two boats are having a race on a frictionless horizontal lake. Boat A has a mass of \(m\), while boat B has a mass of \(2m\). The boats have identical sails, so the wind exerts the same constant force \(F\) on each of them.

Which boat has the greater kinetic energy as it crosses the finish line?

Which of the following statements is/are true concerning kinetic energy?

**I.** Kinetic energy is a scalar quantity.

**II.** The kinetic energy of an object that accelerates uniformly increases linearly.

**III.** If a moving object changes only its direction and not speed, its kinetic energy does not change.
