Positional energy

What velocity in km/h must a body weighing 60 kg have for its kinetic energy to be the same as its positional energy at the height 50 m?

Correct answer:

v =  112.7553 km/h

Step-by-step explanation:

m=60 kg h=50 m g=9.81 m/s2  E=m g h=60 9.81 50=29430 J  E=12mv2  v1=2 Em=2 2943060=3 109 m/s31.3209 m/s  v=v1 km/h=v1 3.6  km/h=31.3209 3.6  km/h=112.755 km/h=112.7553 km/h
