# Physics

I have some physics problems that I would like to get checked please?

1. 1.Can something have energy without having momentum?

-No, it can have P.E. and no K.E., however if the object has no K.E. then it doesnâ€™t have no velocity therefore it has no momentum.

3. If a 20 kg object fell to the surface of the Earth from a height of 30 m, what would its final velocity be? (work this problem from the standpoint of linear motion.)

-I got 24.23 m/s

4. If a 20 kg object fell to the surface of the Earth from a height of 30m, what would its final velocity be? (work this problem from the energy standpoint.) Should you get the same answer as you did in question 3? (This one I am not too sure)

-I got 39.60 m/s

2. 1. Yes, if the energy is not kinetic

3 and 4

In both cases V = sqrt(2gH)= 24.2 m/s

I had these problems on my test and for some reason got them wrong. Here are the problems: Solve: x-y=9 x+y=1 The test states that the answer is (5,-4) I've checked ,y work and used substitution to solve this and still get x=4,
