A ball bounces up 28 centimeters after being dropped from a height of 2 meters. What percent of the potential energy is converted into kinetic energy on the bounce?

  • Science -

    0.28/2.00,
    converted to percent.

    At the height reached after one bounce, the ball has potential energy equal to its bounce kinetic energy.

    That is a pretty dead ball!
