Consider the following statements:
1. A tennis ball and a football can have equal kinetic energy if they have equal velocities
2. A horse and a dog are running with the same speed; both have same kinetic energy
Which among the above statements is / are correct?

Answer: [D] Neither 1 nor 2 is correct

A light and a heavy body can have equal kinetic energy if they have different velocities i.e. light body is moving with high speed and heavy body is moving with low speed. A horse and a dog are running with the same speed. The horse will possess more kinetic energy because the mass of horse is more than the mass of the dog. And Kinetic energy =1/2mv2.
