Unit 5: Energy Worksheet 12 pts. 1.(1 pt.) What is the equation for kinetic energy? 2.(1 pt.) What is the equation for gravitational potential energy? Show your work on all math problems including the equation that you used. 3. (2 pts.) Imagine a 10 kg block moving with a velocity of 20 m/s to the left. Calculate the kinetic energy of this block 4. (2 pts.) If a 50 kg student is standing on the edge of a cliff. Find the student’s gravitational potential energy if the cliff is 40 m high. (Continue to next page) K.E. = 1/2 m v 2 P.E. = mgh m = 10 kg v=20m/s 2000 Potential energy =mass*gravitational acceleration*height 50 kg x 9.81 m/s² x 40 m 19,620 Subscribe to view the full document.

5. Suppose a skydiver ( mass = 75 kg ) is falling toward the Earth. When the skydiver is 100 m above the Earth he is moving at 60 m/s . At this point ……. a. (2 pts.) Calculate the skydiver’s Gravitational potential energy 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?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
