I was hoping that somebody could explain the physics behind a person bouncing up and down the trampoline. I know the basics as far as what happens to Kinetic Energy, Elastic potential energy, and gravitational potential energy...but there certainly has to be more than this, right? Can someone just explain the physics as to what's happening to an object bouncing on a trampoline on the very bottom, right in the middle, and at the very top?
