Here is the problem, according to me:
In a classic hamburger, according to my internet research, approximately 906 kJ are contained.
Now take a car of 1 000 kilograms, and push it to 30 m/s. It has a certain kinetic energy, which is: 1 000 * 30² = 900 kJ
So does it mean that the work (in a physical sense) needed to stop the car is equivalent to the energy brought by the hamburger, so a human just have to eat an hamburger to be able to stop the car?
It is very hard to imagine, as even with the strength of an human and the possibility to brake the car very slowly, I think a human will need a lot of energy.
So how it is possible to compare the energy brought by food and the mechanical/kinetic energy?
Because on the other hand, it could also mean that with the energy brought by one hamburger (approximately 15% of the food energy is used by the human body, and the value I gave take into account this 85% factor), I am able to put push a car to 30 m/s!
