  2. I got the first question right but failed the rest lol... Anywho! Here are the answers.
    1. The velocity decreases and the kinetic energy decreases.
    2. An increase in temperature difference between the inside and outside of the building.
    3. The total kinetic energy remains the same.
    4. 76.761 J
    5. The energy loss must increase.
