If the total mechanical energy of an object is conserved, then ____. List all that apply ... .


Definition of Total Mechanical Energy:
The total mechanical energy possessed by an object is the sum of its kinetic energy and potential energy.

Often times an object moves in such a manner as to conserve its total mechanical energy. The kinetic energy and the potential energy may individually change, yet the sum of these two forms of energy (the total amount of mechanical energy) remains a constant value. If the sum is the same amount at every location along the object's path, then total mechanical energy is said to be conserved.
