CLICKER QUESTION #1 Reading Question (Sections 5.1 – 5.7) (This is a closed-book quiz, no consulting with neighbors, etc.) A. The force of Earth’s gravity causes work to be done on the Moon, giving it energy of motion. B. No work is done on the Moon because the net force on it is zero. C. The work done on the Moon causes it to be in a circular orbit. D. No work is done on the Moon. E. The Earth’s gravity gives the Moon kinetic energy. The Moon is in circular orbit about the Earth. Which statement is most correct ?
