two unequal masses have the same kinetic energy . prove that momentum of heavier body is more. and the momentum of a body increased by 20%.calculate the percentage increase in its kinetic energy.

p, momentum = mXv
m is the mass and v is the velocity,
Hence, p is directly proportional to mass of the object.
If momentum increases by 20%, then the mass also has increased by 20%.
KE = 1/2 mv^2, KE is directly proportional to mass.
mass increases by 20%, KE also increase by 20%.
