(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

What takes more energy? Accelerating a car from 10-20m/s or from 20-30m/s? Why?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Since KE = 1/2mv^2, I suppose the higher the velocity is the more kinetic energy the car will have, but I have no clue how to solve this problem.
