For each situation, you need to determine if the object has KE or GPE or both. Then find their values
A 20-kg child is tossed up into the air by her parent. The child is 2 meters off the ground traveling 5 m/s.
Circle one: KE / GPE / both
Show your work for finding the values of each type of energy the object has:
KE since the child is being tossed up into the air
KE = 1/2 mv^2 = 1/2 20 5^2 = 250j remember to put in ALL of the values for the equation and v is v^2
GPE = mgh = 20 9.81 2 = 392.4 j
