Homework Help: physics

An object of mass 26 kg is thrown straight upwards from the ground at 27 m/s. Due to air resistance (a non-conservative force), the object loses some of its initial energy during its trip to reach maximum height and only travels to a height above the ground of 16.3 meters. What percentage of its initial energy is lost to air resistance during its flight to maximum height?
