I am having trouble making sense of the KE=1/2MV^2 formula. If I am interpreting it correctly, it is stating that twice the speed = 4 times the energy. To my way of thinking, it seems to violate conservation of energy and relativity. I even did a simple experiment ( dropped a weight on some springs ) but it only added to my confusion. Not having any higher math training, what I need is some real world example that clearly demonstrates this formula.
