1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A 10 kg object is dropped from 100m above. What is the kinetic energy of the object right before it hits the ground?

(Assume: g= 10 m/s^2)

2. Relevant equations

(Assume: g= 10 m/s^2)

3. The attempt at a solution

I got 100 right before it hits the ground..
