An athlete whose mass is 55.0 kg steps off a 10.0 meter platform and drops onto a trampoline which, while stretching, brings her to a stop 1.00 meter above the ground. Assuming no losses, how much energy must have momentarily been stored in the trampoline as she came to rest?How high should she bounce on the rebound?

Near the surface of the Earth there is an electric field of about 150 V/m which points downward. Two identical balls with mass m=0.540 kg are dropped from a height of 2.0 m, but one of the balls is positively charged with q1=+550 microCoulombs and the second is negatively charged with q2=-550 microCoulombs. Use conservation of energy to determine the difference in the speed of the two balls when they hit the ground. (neglect air resistance)
