a. What potential energy does the rock possess relative to the base of the cliff?

b. The rock falls from the cliff. What is the kinetic energy just before it strikes the ground?

c. What speed does the rock have as it strikes the ground?

2) Justin pulls his 55 kg girlfriend in a 12 kg sled with a constant force of 79 N for 120 meters.

**Dr. Jane**, Monday, March 11, 2013 at 5:17pm1) PE = mgh

PE = 20 kg * 9.8 m/sec^2 *100m

KE = PE

KE = 1/2 * m*v^2

2) W=F x d

F = mg

Force = 55 x 9.8 m/sec^2

work=force*distance=79*120 joules
