- Homework Statement:
- A ball is rolled off the top of a ramp, onto the ground. Derive the following formula for kinetic energy by any means possible:

- Relevant Equations:
- Ek=gmR^2/4h

I have no idea how to do this. I've tried conservation of mechanical energy and it didn't work.

Ek = Kinetic Energy

R = horizontal range of the ball

h = height from which the ball is released

Ek = Kinetic Energy

R = horizontal range of the ball

h = height from which the ball is released
