If an object is dropped from 10 m above the ground, what is the height at which it’s kinetic energy and potential energy are equal?


If an object is dropped from 10 m above the ground, what is the height at which it’s kinetic energy and potential energy are equal? 

Step 1

Given that the object is dropped from a height of 10m above the ground.

The question is to find at what height kinetic energy and potential energy of the object are equal.

Let that height be h1.

At height “h1” kinetic energy of the object and potential energy of the object are equal.

Step 2

When the object is at h1,


Step 3

We can find V from law of conservation of energy ,

Decrease in PE is equal to increa...
