  1) As a stone slides down a frictionless, ice-covered hill, its mechanical energy is conserved but its momentum is not conserved. 2) Two cars collide, lock bumpers, and eventually slide to a stop due to friction with the roadway.  During this entire process, mechanical energy and momentum are both conserved. 3) Kinetic.

2.2   True/False   1) The acceleration is always the slope of the "velocity versus time" graph and the velocity is always the slope of the "position versus time" graph. 2) It is not physically possible for the "position versus time" graph of a moving animal to be either perfectly vertical or perfectly horizontal. 3).
