Question #5326
A 100g stone is thrown straight upwards at 19 m/s from the top of a 75 m building. (a) What is the Stone&#039;s velocity as it hits the ground? (b) What is the maximum height of the stone? (c)What is the stone&#039;s kinetic energy when the gravitational potential energy is 30% less than when it started? (d) What is the stone&#039;s gravitational potential energy 1.0 s before it touches the ground?

m=100 kg
h=75m
v0=19m/s
a) When the stone hits the ground it`s the gravitational potential energy is equal zero, so let`s use the law of energy conservation: b) The maximum height of the stone is achieved when the stone`s kinetic energy is equal zero. So let`s use the law of energy conservation: c) Let`s use the law of energy conservation: d) We need use the time of the fall a) 42.8 m/s
b) 93.4 m
c) 40.1 kj
d) 39.2 kj
