#### 1 Answer

##### Solution :-

When the object falls freely towards the bottom, its mechanical energy decreases and K.E. will increase, because the object touches the bottom, all its mechanical energy gets reborn into K.E. Because the object hits the laborious ground, all its K.E. gets reborn into heat and sound energy. It may also deform the bottom relying upon the character of the ground and therefore the quantity of K.E. possessed by the thing.
