## Question:

The kinetic energy of an object of mass m traveling at velocity v is given by 1/2mv^{2}. Suppose a car of mass m_{0} equipped with a crash-avoidance system automatically applies the brakes to avoid a collision and slows from a velocity of v_{1} to a velocity of v_{2}. Find an expression, in factored form, for the difference between the original and final kinetic energy
