5. When a rock is thrown straight up in the air, after it leaves the hand, the rock begins to slow down. This occurs because:

a) the rock is gaining potential energy as it rises and thus it must lose kinetic energy
b)the force of gravity acting on the rock increases as the rock rises
c)the forces acting on the rock are balanced
d)the potential energy of the rock decreases as the rock rises

my answer: d
