Computing Energy in Excel This assignment is an example of the Law of Conservation of Energy. A trampolinist is in the air so the total energy of the system is constant. During the up phase of the motion the trampolinist gains height and potential energy and loses vertical velocity and kinetic energy. On the downward phase of the motion the trampolinist loses height and potential energy and gains vertical velocity and kinetic energy. At any point in the motion the sum of kinetic and potential energy are equal to the total energy of the system. Use the attached Excel spreadsheet to compute height and velocity of the diver with projectile motion equations and energy with kinetic and potential energy equations. Then plot xy scatter graphs of time, height and velocity and time, kinetic, potential and total energy. Here is the initial information: A 50 kg trampolinist takes off with an initial vertical velocity of 3.8 m/s and an initial height of 2.3 m.

    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.
