The question asks for which of these statements is true.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a) The Kinetic Energy of an object depends on the direction of the motion involved.

b)The kinetic energy of any object is either positive or Zero.

c) If the scalar product (also called the dot product) of two nonzero vectors is zero, then the vectors must be perpendicular to each other.

D) Spring A and B are identical except that A is stiffer than B; that is Ka > Kb. More work must be expended on spring A if both springs are stretched by the same amount.

E) If the earth revolves around the sun in a perfectly circular orbit, then the sun does not do any work on the earth.

F) The work done to raise a box onto a platform depends on how fast it is raised.

What i thought was that BCD and F were all true.. but apparently that's incorrect.

Does anyone have any ideas?
