A 13.0 {\rm g} plastic ball is dropped from a height of 2.80 {\rm m} and is moving at 3.20 {\rm m/s} just before it hits the floor.
How much mechanical energy was lost during the ball's fall?
delta E mech = ____ J

  • physics -

    What does your \rm symbol mean? Why do you need a symbol there at all?

    delta E mechanical = (Initial PE + KE) - (Final PE + KE)
    = MgH - (1/2) M*Vfinal^2

    H = 2.80 m is the height of the drop. Initial KE is zero
