​ A 3-kg stone is dropped from a height of 100 m.  Find its kinetic and potential energies when it is 50 m from the ground.
 

  • Physical Science - ,

    PE = mgh = 3 * 9.8 * 100 = 2940 J.

    Vf^2 = Vo^2 + 2g*d,
    Vf^2 = 0 + 19.6*50 = 980,
    Vf = 31.3 m/s.

    KE = 0.5m*V2 = 1.5*(31.3)^2 = 1470 J.

    PE = 2940 - 1470 = 1470 Joules.

    Where did you get the 19.6 from?

    Also what formula are you using? The Vf^2 = Vo^2 + 2g*d....i've never seen that before
