energy when an object falls.
B. Gravitational potential energy transforms into electric
potential energy when an object falls.
C. Gravitational potential energy transforms into elastic
potential energy when an object falls.
D. Gravitational potential energy transforms into chemical
potential energy when an object falls.

## Answers ( )

1. A would be what was wrong with ur friends statement

2. Gravitational potential energy transforms into kinetic  energy when an object falls, not when it rises. (A)

On the way up, the object moves slower and slower as it loses kinetic energy, and it gains gravitational potential energy as it goes higher and higher.
