How many energy would be required to move the orbit of a planet like Mars enough to hit another planet (let's say... the Earth)?

DILLON! Have anything to add for my feedback to Ask??

"So we see that Ask has refined its community guidelines per the users' requests. You see, what really happened was Ask got way more strict than we were aiming for. All we were asking we for questions like "Am I pretty?", "Am I pregnant?", and Justin Beiber and One Direction questions to be removed. That's really it. We didn't want comment timeouts, or every question and answer being removed. We enjoy fun questions like jokes and riddles. We like the questions (but not a ton of them) that are silly and pointless, but also fun and happy. We still love important, real questions, but there's a time when it gets too strict, to the point of unhappy members. Many people are very upset with the changes and considered leaving. I've even thought of it, which is sad. I loved Ask and I've made tons of friends. It used to be so much fun. We only wanted a few things changed. Not anything big or changed to anything big.... I guess that's all, and that's my feedback. Thanks.... :("

Y'ALL! I'm giving Ask feedback. What do you think I should add?
Alright, this is what I have so far:

Even an impact by a Mars-sized body failed to dislodge Earth from its orbit around the Sun, although the impact probably did change our axis of spin to the present 23.5 degrees to the plane of the solar system. To escape the Sun, Earth would require a speed of 11,000 mph (5 km/s) over its orbital speed of 67,000 mph (30 km/s). It's difficult to envision a force that could accelerate the mass of Earth to such a speed and therefore improbable Earth will ever escape the Sun.

Earth may have been in a slightly different orbit before the Mars-sized body hit it but is unlikely to change much in the future. Earth's orbit has been relatively stable for over four billion years with little sign of change in its predictable orbits for at least the next five billion years. Although the Sun is shrinking slightly, astronomers believe this is a temporary contraction and has negligible effect on Earth's orbit.

May be it wouldn't kick Earth out of its orbit, but it wouldn't do us any good, that's for sure. Last time it kicked a chunk out of the planet that is now the Moon. So it will cause a bit more than only broken windows...

I think you're going to have to add some sex and violence to your answer if you want anyone to make a movie about it.

I think you mean how much energy. And I doubt a human actually knows the answer to this. If I had to guess id say a lot.
