A 0.21-kg apple falls from a tree to the ground, 4.0 m below. Ignoring air resistance, determine the apple’s kinetic energy, K, the gravitational potential energy of the system, U, and the total mechanical energy of the system, E, when the apple’s height above the ground is (a) 4.0 m, (b) 3.0 m, (c) 2.0 m, (d) 1.0 m, and (e) 0 m. Take the ground level to be y = 0.
