6. The potential energy of a freely falling object decreases progressively. Does this violate the law of conservation of energy? Why?

Question:

The potential energy of a freely falling object decreases progressively. Does this violate the law of conservation of energy? Why?

Answer:

No, it does not violate the law of conservation of energy here. The reason is that there is a proportional and equal relationship between potential energy and kinetic energy. That is, the total energy of the object is always conserved.
