a hammer falls off a roof and strikes the ground with a certain amount of kenetic energy. if it fell from a roof twice, would its kenetic energy change? explain?

• science -

The kinetic energy gain while it falls would be the same the second time, but all the K.E. gain from the first fall would have become heat.
