Would you mind checking one of my problems from my physics study guide? I know the answer and just want to make sure I am using the right formula. :)
A 78-kg skydiver has a speed of 62 m/s at an altitude of 870 m above the ground.
a. Determine the kinetic energy possessed by the skydiver. (149916 J)
b. Determine the potential energy possessed by the skydiver. (665028 J)
c. Determine the total mechanical energy possessed by the skydiver. (814944 J)
Formula: M.E=K.E + P.E
