    3. You lower a 2.50 kg textbook (remember when textbooks used to be made out of paper instead of being digital?) from a height of 1.81 m to 1.50 m. What is its change in potential energy?

    1.50-1.81=-.31
    (2.50kg)(9.80)(-.31)

    =-7.595???

    Looks good. It is particularly good that you have minus sign, indicating that the book has lost potential energy. To be perfect, give the units.

    The numbers are OK. I'd put in some units and some text before you turn it in.
