Isn't that all there is to investiage though (that KE is proportional to v^2)? It doesn't look like you can do much more than that :/.

u need half the mass of teh runner, and the speed of the runner squared.

multiply these 2 valuesu find, and u get a kinetic energy of the runner (in Joules)

look at that, oxbridge material physics!!
