If there is a 1.36 kg weight falling .1524 meters,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

how many joules are created when the object reachs the end of the .1524 meters. How do you calculate this?

I came up with 2.032 joules which is .20723 kg meters which I think is enough power to lift 1.36 kg .1524 meters which is the same as where I started and that cannot be correct because a falling object has more power than the same object standing still.

Thanks,

Greg
