Unformatted text preview: How high will it go (neglecting air resistance and earth rotation). How high would we calculate if we assumed constant acceleration of gravity? Chapter 7 Outcome of Work The outcome of work is to change the energy of the object If we do no work on the system, there will be no change in energy, but this does not exclude the possibility that kinetic energy is converted to potential energy, or visa versa. If an internal force does work it results in a transfer of energy from one form to another. If some external force does work on the system or if there is a nonconservative force (i.e., friction) the total energy of the system will change...
