A 7 kilogram bowling ball is dropped from a fourth story window. If each story is 3 meters high, use energy conservation (not the equations of motion) to find the ball's velocity when it strikes the ground. Ignore air resistance.

1/2 m v^2= mgh

v= sqrt (2g*(3+.5))

V=sqrt(2)(9.8)(3)

v=sqrt58.8

v=7.67 m/s

did I do this right? thanks
