# A 0.19-kg stone is held 1.2 m above the top edge of a water well and then dropped into it. The well has a depth of 5.3 m.(a) Taking y = 0 at the top edge of the well, what is the gravitational potential energy of the stone-Earth system before the stone is released?(b) Taking y = 0 at the top edge of the well, what is the gravitational potential energy of the stone-Earth system when it reaches the bottom of the well?(c) What is the change in gravitational potential energy of the system from release to reaching the bottom of the well?
