Which describes the relationship between potential and kinetic energy of a ball thrown up in the air as it falls back to the ground? A. Gravitational potential energy increases; kinetic energy increases. B. Kinetic energy equals gravitational potential energy. C. Kinetic energy increases; gravitational potential energy decreases. D. The mass of the ball is required to answer this.
