Recently a team based out of England is attempting to break the current land speed record of 763 miles and hour (a record also set by the English).${}^{1}$  The Bloodhound team seeks to break current land speed record and the 1000 mph mark on land,which is a pretty impressive number all in itself but honestly what does that mean?  It's difficult to really get a feel for what kind of force is involved with any object moving at 1000 mph, let alone a car.  To get a better grasp of what that means, we need to get a better idea of the amount of energy we are dealing with.  In order to understand, lets take a closer look at the car itself.
