a child on the swing can increase his amplitude by pumping up. where does the xtra energy come from?

Expert Answer:

Dear student,
There is nothing called xtra energy. There is always energy conversion taking place. The muscular energy of the kid ( in moving the legs with force) is converted to mechanical energy of the swing.
Hope this helps.
