a 1kg ball is thrown into the air with an initial velocity of 30 m/sec. how much kinetic energy does the ball have?


-how much potential energy does the ball have when it reaches the top of its ascent?

-how high into the air did the ball travel?

  1. Assume potential energy on ground is zero.
    Kinetic energy at 30 m/s
    =(1/2)mv²
    Potential energy at highest point, H from ground
    =mgh
    Equate energies,
    mgh=(1/2)mv²
    h=(1/2)mv²/mg
    =v²/(2g)
