Homework Help: physics

Posted by Jay on Wednesday, November 17, 2010 at 12:30pm.

A 2 kg rock is released from rest at a height of 29 m. Ignore air resistance and determine the kinetic energy, gravitational potential energy, and total mechanical energy at each of the following heights;20m 15m 9m

PE= mgh at any height.

KE at any height= InitialPE-finalPE
Total mech energy = KE+ PE


Please Can you explain how I can calculate kinetic energy if I don't know velocity I know formula mv^2/2 in this case I have to know the velocity.
