A 80kg man jumps out of a plane at a height of 1500m and v=4.5m/s^2 How much energy is lost? (assume no wind resistance)

https://brainmass.com/physics/energy/plane-height-energy-lost-9621

#### Solution Preview

Energy lost (E) = P.E. + K.E. = m*g*h + (1/2)*m*v^2

=> E = 80*9.8*1500 + ...

#### Solution Summary

The plane at a height energy lost is analyzed. With good explanations and calculations, the problem is solved.
