    A block starts at rest at point P at the top of a ramp which is height h above the ground. The block slides down one side and up the other, stopping at a point less than h above the ground.

  • The block did not go as high on the other side because gravity pulls down.
  • The block did not go as high on the other side because potential energy always has to decrease.
  • The block did not go as high on the other side because work from friction made the mechanical energy less.
  • The situation as described is impossible to happen.
