Why is it easier to stop a lightly loaded truck than a heavier one that has equal speed?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

because of the momentum = mv..since one has a bigger mass it will have a bigger momentum

it does not depend on the speed of the plane b/c its inside it

KE max at lowest point. pe max at higher point....i'm guessing you mean PE so they are both equal at that moment

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
