On a slide a child has a potential energy that decreases by 1000 J while her kinetic erergy increases by 900 J. What other form of energy is involved and how much?

  • physics -

    some of the potential energy was lost to heat through friction. If there were no friction the gain in ke would equal the loss in pe.

  • physics -

    100 J of friction
