a)The change of one form of energy into another form of energy is known as transformation of energy, e.g. in a cell chemical energy is transformed into
electrical energy
b) a. When a ball is thrown upwards its kinetic energy gradually converts into potential energy and potential energy
becomes maximum at the maximum height attained by the ball
b. When a stone is dropped from the roof of the building its potential energy gradually converts into kinetic energy and kinetic energy becomes maximum when the stone is just above the ground
Solution 32
a) Law of conservation of energy states that whenever energy changes from one form to another form, the total amount of energy remains constant. Energy can
never be created nor destroyed, it transforms from one form to another. For example, when electrical energy is converted into light energy in an electric
bulb, then some energy is wasted as heat during conversion but the total energy remains the same.
b) Initially the pendulum is at rest. The bob is pulled to one side to position B to give it potential energy due to higher position of B and then released, the bob
starts swinging
i. When the bob is at position B, it has potential energy but no kinetic energy
ii. As the bob starts moving down from position B to A, its potential energy starts decreasing and kinetic energy starts increasing
iii. When the bob is at position A, it has maximum kinetic energy and zero potential energy
iv. As the bob starts moving down from position A to C, its kinetic energy starts decreasing and potential energy starts increasing
v. On reaching the extreme position C, the bob stops for a very small instant of time and bob maximum potential energy and zero kinetic energy.
Therefore at extreme positions B and C bob has only potential energy and at A it has only kinetic energy and at other intermediate positions bob has both kinetic
and potential energy. Thus the total energy of the pendulum is same for any instant of time (conserved)

Since from point A total energy = PE + KE = 80 J
And according to the law of conservation of energy Total energy remains constant
a) PE = 0
