An Olympic high jumper starts running. As she approaches the bar, she pushes off the
ground and lifts her body off the ground and flies over the bar. She then falls down into a large padding on the ground. Describe the energy transformation:
The _________ energy in food that she had eaten is transformed into _______
energy of her moving body.
The ____________ energy of her moving body is transformed into mostly
__________ energy and some _____________ energy as she passes over the bar.
The ___________ energy and ____________ energy is transformed into
_______________ energy as she falls.
When she hits the padding, her ___________ energy is transformed into ________
energy by the padding.
