A 65 kg diver is standing on a diving platform 10.0 m above the water. What is the gravitational potential energy of the diver with respect to the water’s surface?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know this one,,,

Ep = mgh

e= 65*10* 9.8

= 6370 Joules

or 6.37 kilojoules

If the diver in question 6 falls from the diving platform, what is her speed just as she strikes the water?

but I don't know how to calculate this one...
