If an object is thrown in an upward direction from the top of a building 160 ft. high at an initial speed of 21.82 mi/h., what is its final speed when it hits the ground?(Disregard wind resistance. Round answer according to significant figures and do not reflect negative direction in your answer.

  • physics -

    Kinetic energy increase = Potential energy decrease
    (M/2) [V2^2 - V1^2] = M g H
    [V2^2 - V1^2] = 2 g H
    Solve for V2, the final velocity.
    V1 = 21.82 m/s
    The V2 answer will not depend upon the direction it was thrown!
