# For the following questions, imagine the book drops in free fall and falls a distance d. For the system of the book and earth, the change in total energy of the system if the book falls a distance d _______.(A) is positive.(B) is negative.(C) is zero.(D) has a sign which cannot be determined.

C) is zero

Explanation:

According to the law of energy conservation, the total mechanical energy of the object is conserved. A book falling a distance d would have a change in potential energy, resulting in the same change in kinetic energy. But the total mechanical energy must be the same. So there's 0 change in total energy of the system.

In what ways are electromagnetic force and gravitational force similar

From looking at the two force equations, you can see the similarities and how gravitational force can be considered parallel to the force between two charges.

Besides being proportional to the inverse of the square of the separation: both forces extend to infinity,They also both travel at the speed of light.

In particular the gravity is a theory very different from any other field theory. The electromagnetic force, the nuclear weak force and the nuclear strong force are all described in terms of an exchange of particles. It means that the distant action is in reality the transport of a particle from the source to the destination.
So for example two electrons that repel each other, are exchanging photons to create the force.
