Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you set the gravitational potential energy to be zero at the bottom, i.e. set height equal to zero for that point, in that case the value of kinetic energy at the bottom equals the value of potential energy at the top.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in the general case, since total energy is conserved, the total variation equals 0, so the variation in kinetic and potential energy must be related: \[\Delta E_{total}=\Delta K + \Delta U = 0\] so \[\Delta K = \Delta U\] or \[K_{top}K_{bottom} =U_{bottom}U_{top}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh right! Because of the conservation of energy, right! Thank you :)
