# What is the speed of a golf ball when it is 8.0m below its highest point?

A 47.0-g golf ball is driven from the tee with an initial speed of 52.0 m/s and rises to a height of 24.6 m. (a) Neglect air resistance and determine the kinetic energy of the ball at its highest point. (b) What is its speed when it is 8.0 m below its highest point?
