The ice falls freely under the influence of gravity. Which one of the following statements concerning this situation is true? Ignore any effects due to nonconservative forces. a) The kinetic energy of the ice increases by equal amounts for equal distances. b) The kinetic energy of the ice increases by equal amounts for equal times. c) The potential energy of the ices decreases by equal amounts for equal times. d) The total energy of the block increases by equal amounts over equal distances....
