**Unformatted text preview: **(The sum of kinetic and potential energy) 6. (Optional Extra Credit): Calculate the TOTAL mechanical energy of a pendulum as it swings from its highest point to its lowest point. Pendulum mass is 4 kg. Use your equations for gravitational potential energy and kinetic energy to determine these values based on the data given below. Total energy is the sum of gravitational potential energy and kinetic energy. In this problem, round gravity to: g = 10 m/s 2 . a. Complete this table (up to 3 pts. EC) b. (1 pt. EC) What can you conclude about the total mechanical energy of a pendulum as it swings back and forth? Highest Point Lowest Point Velocity (m/s) 0.0 5.0 Height (m) 1.25 0.0 Kinetic Energy (J) Potential Energy (J) Total Energy (J) 235 1/2mass*velocity Mass*g*height...
