well you know your potential energy equation i'd hope

just in case

U=mgh where m is the mass g is gravity h is height and U is potential

the change in potential is one potential minus another.

what height do you start at, what is your potential at a new height and how long did it take to get there.


oh yeah and kinetic energy is k=.5mv^2

use K=.5mv^2 and U=mgh with a little trig and you golden
