A. Directions: Write your first name if there is work done to an object and if not write your family name on the
space before the number.
________________1. A boy running across the playground.
________________2.A mother dancing with her baby in her arms.
________________3. A basket being lifted.
________________4.A stone thrown into a well.
________________5.A teacher applies a force to a wall and becomes exhausted.

B. Multiple Choice. Encircle the best answer.

1. Suppose you throw a ball upward. What happen to the ball’s energy as it goes up?
a) Its work increases c)Its PE increases
b) Its total energy increases d) Its KE increases

2. What happen to the ball’s energy as it falls?

a) Its PE changes to KE c) Its KE changes to PE
b) Its PE changes to work d) Its KE changes to work

C. Problem solving.
1. Richardson pulls a toy 3.0 m across the floor by a string, applying a force of 0.50 N. During the first meter,
the string is parallel to the floor. In the next two meters, the string makes an angle of 35˚ with the horizontal
direction. Find: a.) the work done during first meter, b.) next two meters, and c.) the total amount of work
2. Knowing that the potential energy at the top of the tall platform is 50 J, what is the potential energy at
the other positions shown on the stair steps and the incline?

3. Calculate the kinetic energy of a 1000-kg car traveling at 16 m/s.

4. Missy Diwater, the former platform diver for the Ringling Brother's Circus, had a kinetic energy of 12 000 J
just prior to hitting the bucket of water. If Missy's mass is 40 kg, then what is her speed?

5. A ball with a mass of 0.5 kg is dropped from 10-meter building. Applying the law of conservation of
mechanical energy, what is the final velocity of the ball just before it hits the ground? (Neglect air friction.)

6. Describe the energy transfer when you are biking going up a hill.
