    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..

    What theory/formula do you think you need to use for this problem?
