If f = ma and e = 1/2mv² and e = f·d and you apply the following constraints friction losses in wheels and air drag are constant or negligible force at the wheel hub is constant Oberth would play a part. Same force applied, same interval of application, same acceleration, would yield a higher Δe because the distance covered during force application would ...
