Dear student,

The velocity of the profile of each elementary section of the pulse is shown in figure 1 and figure 2.
When both the pulses completely overlap, the velocity profiles of both the pulses in overlap region are identical. By superposition, the velocity of each elementary section doubles. Therefore K.E. of each section becomes four times.Hence the K.E. in the complete width of overlap becomes four times, i.e., 4k.

Thank you
