### Energy

A crane lowers a steel girder into place at a construction site. The girder moves with constant speed. Consider the work Wg done by gravity and the work WT done by the tension in the cable. Which of the following is correct?

• Wg is positive and WT is positive.
• Wg is negative and WT is negative.
• Wg is positive and WT is negative.
• Wg and WT are both zero.
• Wg is negative and WT is positive.

A crane lowers a steel girder into place at a construction site. The girder moves with constant speed. Consider the work Wg done by gravity and the work WT done by the tension in the cable. Which of the following is correct?

• Wg is positive and WT is positive.
• Wg is negative and WT is negative.
• Wg is positive and WT is negative.
• Wg and WT are both zero.
• Wg is negative and WT is positive.

The tension force is opposite the direction of motion while the gravitational force is in the same direction as the motion. The cos(theta) term in the work formula is negative.

Which force does the most work?

• The 6 N force.
• The 8 N force.
• The 10 N force.
• They all do the same amount of work.

Rank in order, from largest to smallest, the gravitational potential energies of balls 1 to 4.

• (Ug)1 > (Ug)2 > (Ug)3 > (Ug)4
• (Ug)4 > (Ug)3 > (Ug)2 > (Ug)1
• (Ug)1 > (Ug)2 = (Ug)4 > (Ug)3
• (Ug)3 > (Ug)2 = (Ug)4 > (Ug)1
• (Ug)4 = (Ug)2 > (Ug)3 > (Ug)1

A small child slides down the four frictionless slides A–D. Each has the same height. Rank in order, from largest to smallest, her speeds vA tovD at the bottom.

• vA = vB = vC = vD
• vD > vA = vB > vC
• vD > vA > vB > vC
• vC > vA = vB > vD
• vC > vB > vA > vD

• 4 m/s.
• 2 m/s.
• 1 m/s.
