thanks alot!

A bobsled zips down an ice track, starting from rest at the top of a hill with a vertical height of 150m. Disregarding friction, what is the velocity of the bobsled at the bottom of the hill? (g=9.81 m/s^2)

any help is appreciated :)

**Damon**, Saturday, February 14, 2009 at 3:15pmloss of potential energy = kinetic energy at bottom

m g h = (1/2) m v^2

9.81 * 150 = (1/2) v^2

solve for v
