Actually, I believe the answer is c - kinetic energy. Kinetic energy is energy that is in use, and as she rises, that is what is happening. It wouldn't be choice a because she is moving. (Potential energy is energy that has not yet been used.)

Subtract the kinetic energy at the bottom from the potential energy loss. The remainder becomes frictional heat. Potential energy loss: M g H = 21.7*9.81*3.5 = 745.1 J Kinetic energy at bottom of slide: = (1/2) M v^2 = 52.5 J

a) mass*gravity*height= gravitational potential energy. 17*103*9.8= x Joules b) as the object falls the potential energy is converted to kinetic. so just before it hits the ground all of the potential energy has become kinetic.

It has kinetic energy when the CD is turning. Its potential energy depends upon its elevation. Asking "where" the energy is doesn't make a lot of sense. The kinetic energy is in any part that moves, and the potential energy is in all parts of the player.

I need help with part b, c, and d please! A 45 g mass is attached to a massless spring and allowed to oscillate around an equilibrium according to: y(t) = 1.4 * sin( 4 * t ) where y is measured in meters and t in seconds...

How do i find this? A shooting star is a meteor that burns up when it reaches Earth's atmosphere. Many of these meteoroids are quite small. Calculate the kinetic energy of a meteoroid of mass 6.0 g moving at a speed of 45 km/s and compare it to the kinetic energy of a 1400-kg ...
