a ball has a mass of 0.5kg dropped from a cliff top, the ball srtikes the sea below at a velocity of 10m/s.
(a)what is the kinetic energy of the ball as it strikes the sea?
(b) what was its potential energy before it was dropped?
(c)from what height was it dropped?

(a) K = 1/2 mv^2 - you have the numbers. plug 'em in

(b) PE = KE

(c) s = v^2/2a
