A boy standing on a high diving board has a mass of 45 kg and a total gravitational potential energy of 2700 j. How high is the diving board?

What is the answer to this question and how did you come up with the answer.

  • Science -

    PE = mg*h = 2700 J.
    45 * 9.8 * h = 2700
    Solve for h.
