Preview - Conservation Of Mechanical Energy During Free Fall

Changes in mechanical energy of the ball


Please answer the questions below.

Observe what happens to kinetic energy (KE), potential energy (PE) and total energy (KE+PE) of the ball after each second it drops.   

Write your observations below.

Observe what happens when the mass of the ball is changed. Write your observations below. Mention which aspects regarding the motion and energy of the ball change and which remain unchanged.


These notes will appear on every page in this lesson so feel free to put anything here you'd like to keep track of.
