# Energy

**1. Imagine two objects, A and B, answer the questions that follow based on the conditions given.**

A= 500g, at 2m, B=1.0kg, at 1m

a. Which has a greater Gravitational Energy? Why

b. If they are both dropped, which would have a greater velocity impact? Why?

c. If both are dropped onto a spring, which will store the greater energy?

** d. Which will cause the spring to compress more?**

**2. Eg = mgh**

**3. a. A=(.5kg)(9.8 N/kg)(2m) = 9.8 J**

B=(1kg)(9.8 N/kg)(1m) = 9.8 J

b. They would both have the same velocity because they both have the same amount of gravitational energy.

c. They will both store the same amount of energy.

** d. Both springs would compress the same.**

Hello everyone, I believe I did my calculations correct for part a, but I’m not positive about my answers on parts b, c, and d. Can someone tell me if I did this incorrectly? Thanks!
