    Monday's and Tuesday's Assignment (March 30 & 31):

    Conclusion question #1:  The washer had the most stored energy when it was being held the highest.  It had the most energy of motion at the bottom of the swing.


    Conclusion question #2:  The higher the starting point, the faster the washer is moving at the bottom of the swing.


    **If you tried the Investigate More: You should have observed that the energy of the first washer hitting the second washer caused the second washer to move, and the first washer slows down when it hits the second washer.  This would conclude that the energy of motion can be transferred from one moving object to another object.
