Solution

## The correct option is B 3 kJConsider the boy, the ground, and the trampoline as a system. The mechanical energy of this system is conserved. The trampoline will have the maximum potential energy when all the gravitational potential energy of the boy converts into the potential energy of the trampoline. Maximum kinetic energy= Gravitational potential energy Maximum kinetic energy= mgh Maximum kinetic energy=60105=3000J=3kJ
