# kinetic energy and potential energy

Please see the attachment.

1.) The water slide shown below ends at a height of 1.50 m above the pool. If the person starts from rest at point A and lands in the water at point B, which has a horizontal distance L = 2.52 m from the base of the slide, what is the height h of the water slide? (Assume the water slide is frictionless.)

2.) An object moves along the x axis, subject to the potential energy shown below. The object has a mass of 1.5 kg, and starts at rest at point A.

What is the object's speeds at point B, at point C, and at point D?

#### Solution Summary

It provides two applications of conservation of energy to find the height of water slide and the speeds of the object, respectively.
