Kinetic energy and potential energy - a dropped stone

An object initially at rest is droped from a height of 20m. What is the speed of the object when it hits the ground? assume g=9.8m/s^2

Solution Preview

When it is at a height of 20m, the energy of the object is purely potential which is given by mass*acceleration due to gravity*height
