Kinetic Energy Lab Report

Satisfactory Essays
The purpose of the experiment was to use previous knowledge of velocity yo perform kinetic energy calculations, make calculations of gravitational potential energy, and to determine what affects GPE and KE more. What was determined to be true was that the potential energy was larger than the kinetic energy and that velocity had a greater effect on the kinetic energy because velocity doubles in the kinetic formula. At first the group had to convert the original ball’s mass from grams to kilograms by dividing by 1,000. Then the group had to determine the height of drop for each location and calculate the potential energy of each ball by doing Mass (kg) x Gravity x Height. To determine the kinetic energy the team had to determine the distance
