Chapter 8 - Potential Energy and Conservation of Energy - Questions: 2e

Answer

The particle will have the greatest kinetic energy in region FG.

Work Step by Step

Total mechanical energy does not change, it is just shifted. When potential energy is high, kinetic energy is low. When added together the total will always be 8J. FG has the least amount of potential energy, so it must have the greatest kinetic energy.
