an automobile to be transported by ship is raised above the dock by a crane. If the gravitational potential energy of the car is 6.6 x 10^4 and the mass is 960 kg how high has the car been lifted?

m times 9.8 times h

960 x 9.8 x h = 6.6 x 10^4

Simplify.

4408 x h = 66000

66000 / 4408 = 14.97

h = 14.97
