The figure shows the variation of energy with the orbit radius of a body in circular planetary motion. Find the correct statement about the curves A, B and C
                                       

  • (A):A shows the kinetic energy, B the total energy and C the potential energy of the system.
  • (B):C shows the total energy, B the kinetic energy and A the potential energy of the system.
  • (C):C and A are kinetic and potential energies respectively and B is the total energy of the system.
  • (D):A and B are kinetic and potential energies and C is the total energy of the system.

Best Answer

Correct Answer:

(D): A and B are kinetic and potential energies and C is the total energy of the system.
