  • 3. 
    What is an example of kinetic energy at work?
    • A. 

      A ball lodged in a tree

    • B. 

      A frisbee flying through the air

    • C. 

      A car in the garage

  • 4. 
    What does kinetic energy depend on?
    • A. 

      The weight and volume of an object

    • B. 

      The buoyancy of an object

    • C. 

      The mass and speed of an object

  • 5. 
    What is happening between Points A-B 
    • A. 

      Point A is demonstrating potential energy, the potential energy is then transformed into kinetic energy as the coaster moves downhill.

    • B. 

      Point A is demonstrating kinetic energy, as the rollercoaster moves downhill the kinetic energy is transformed into potential energy.

    • C. 

      Point A and Point B are examples of kinetic energy, there is not energy transformation taking place here.
