Hi guys,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a question that has been intriguing me for some time.

If i drop an object 100m at the speed of gravity (9.8), which has a mass of 1000kg - given the initial velocity of zero, i get the following results:

velocity = 44.3 m/s

Kinetic energy = 980000 Joules

If my calculations are correct, would the object generate 435kw of energy given that it takes about 2.4 seconds to fall?

Notwithstanding any loss of energy, can this motion energy be transformed into electrical energy via a turbine generator?

Thanks.
