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

the momentum of an object (originally with a non zero momentum) is doubled by doubling the speed. What happens to the kinetic energy? Justify your answer you should get a numerical answer.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

well i know that momentum is the product of mass and velocity and velocity has to do with speed but im not getting anywhere with this... i dont understand where a numerical value will come from someone please help me asap
