Energy Worksheet 2
Energy Transfer and Storage
For each situation shown below:
1. Show your choice of system, unless it is specified for you.
**Always include the Earth in your system.
2. Decide if your system is frictionless or not, and state this.
3. Sketch an energy bar graph for the initial situation.
4. Then complete the analysis with final internal energy bar graphs and energy flow diagram.

10. Ben Laborin applies a force to push a crate from the bottom of an inclined plane to the top at a
constant speed. The initial state is the crate in motion at the bottom of the hill and the final
state is the crate in motion at the top of the hill. Ignore frictional effects.

11. A moving cross-country skier skis from the top of a hill down into a valley and up a second
smaller hill. The initial state is the skier in motion on top of the first hill and the final state is the
skier in motion on top the second hill. Ignore the effect of friction and air resistance.
