Homework Help: Energy Question

  1. Jul 30, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    v = 1.5
    h = 300mm
    Mass = 5 kg

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Using the potential and kinetic equation formulae:
    PE = mgh
    KE = 0.5mv^2

    Total Energy = PE + KE
    Ended up with 20.33 J
    Sound alright?
