  • Q3
    Kinetic energy is the energy an object has when it is in motion. The kinetic energy of an object can easily be determined by an equation using the mass and velocity of that object. Which runner would have the greatest kinetic energy?
    A 100 kg male running slowly (1.85m/s)
    A 45 kg female running fast (4.17 m/s)
    A 45 kg female running slowly (1.85 m/s)

  • Q6
    Some children use bowling ramps to guide their balls down the alley and to the pins. This facilitates the balls reaching the pins at the end of the lane for children who cannot throw the ball with enough force. What is the energy conversion process that will result from the child releasing the ball at the top of the ramp?
