When an object is moved from rest at point A to rest at point B in a gravitational field, the net work done by the field depends on the mass of the object and
1. the nature of the external force moving the object from A to B.
2. the velocity of the object as it moves between A and B.
3. both the positions of A and B and the path taken between them.
4. the path taken between A and B only.
5. the positions of A and B only.
