Question of the Day: AP Physics 1

Two balls of equal mass (3kg) are hanging from cords 1.5 meters and 2 meters in length from a ceiling in a room with a total height of 3 meters. Which has a greater gravitational potential energy relative to the floor? Assume the acceleration of gravity is .

The ball with the shorter cord

Cannot be determined without knowing the density of the masses

They have the same gravitational potential energy since they have the same mass

There is a negligible difference

The ball with the longer cord
