the physics in jumping on a trampoline

The equation E=KE (kinetic energy) + PE (potential energy) is used to find the energy of a jump on a trampoline. When you jump, you lose your kinetic energy due the velocity of your jump while gaining potential energy. If you jump with a greater speed and force, it will result in a larger jump. The energy you use to push down on the trampoline transfers into the reaction of the springy material to create energy to lift you high into the air.
