Kinetic Energy and Potential Energy question:
http://d.pr/i/vcK4
The gymnast descends from position B and regains contact with the trampoline when it
is in its unstretched position. At this position, her centre of mass is 3.2 m below its
position at B.
Calculate her kinetic energy at the instant she touches the unstretched trampoline

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nope. That's PE of when the person is at B.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, almost :) (3.2/4.2)*2264

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1At any rate, what lalaly did was calculate the total PE from point A to B given 4.2m, 55kg and g (mgh = 2264J). Her KE at point B will be equal to this. Once you know those two things, you should be able to see that (3.2/4.2)*2264J will be the amount of KE at the point where the girl just touches the unstretched trampoline.
