Ice Falling After an ice storm, ice falls from one of the top floors of a 65-story building. 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 non-conservative 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. e) As the block falls, the net work done by all of the forces acting on the ice is zero joules.

    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.
