Height only affects Speed if the object is moving through a medium OTHER than a Vacuum. FRONTAL AREA of the object causes resistance to the forward motion. The 'thicker' the medium the more the resistance. I.E., Water resistance is greater than Air resistance.

So, if the WIDTH of the object is constant, then the increase in Height increases the Frontal Area and increases the resistance to forward motion. Furthermore if the Force moving the object stays the same, then its Velocity will be LOWER.

Kinetic energy of an object = 1/2 (mass) x (speed)2. The object's height has no direct effect on its kinetic energy, and no effect at all unless the object's speed somehow depends on its height.



If you are a runner, it will of course have an effect on your speed. You will be able to take much bigger steps and your muscles will have more area and power. But, to make sure that your speed is growing with your height, you need to actively do cardiovascular activities that make your speed higher, like running for example.


This is completely unrelated to the height. An object at that mass, and speed, can be at any height.This is completely unrelated to the height.

Yes the higher you go the more energy (speed) is converted to GPE (gravitational potentional energy) therefore if the speed is converted then the speed decreases Hope this helps and has not just completely confused you :)



Does speed 'effect' the gravitational potential energy of an object? No, but gravitational potential energy can be converted into kinetic energy - so the gravitational potential energy can effect the speed. Ep = mgh Energy Potential = mass * 9.81 (gravity) * height Speed / Velocity is absent from that equation.


yes there is the higher the height of the slope the quicker the speed is, so as the height of the slope increases, the speed of the object decreases

the average height is 15 ft. tall, and the average speed is about 32 mph.


Speed is part of kinetic energy ... KE = 1/2 mv2 ( v is velocity, speed). Kinetic energy can be converted to potential energy, if done properly. Height is a factor of PE. PE = mgh (h is height). So an increase in KE, more speed, can be transformed into more height.
