490 J = KE (ORIGINAL)

half of it will be 490 /2 J = 245 J , correct?

why you do the half the K.E @mathslover
 one year ago

mathsloverBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
@mayankdevnani because we have to find the height when the new kinetic energy equals half of the original one. ...

mathsloverBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
therefore the new kinetic energy must be equal to 245 Joules.

mathsloverBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
therefore we have : 1/2 m v^2 = 245 J 1/2 m (u^2 + 2gh ) = 245 J 1/2 m (2gh) = 245 mgh = 245 J 2 kg * 9.8 * h = 245

solve for h and you will get h = 12.5 m

1/2 m (u^2 + 2gh ) = 245 J ??????????????

mayankdevnaniBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
1/2 m (u^2 + 2gh ) = 245 J this line!!!
 one year ago

mathsloverBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
since v^2 = u^2 + 2gh therefore..

1/2 mv^2=mgh 490/2=2 (9.8)h h= 9.8 because it is moving against gravity

@03225186213 same I thought BUT it is given in the quest. that g = 9.8 m/s^2
