Could someone please help with this rudimentry calculation. I need to know the difference in the energy at impact between the following two scenarios.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1) 2 lbs falling under gravity from 8 feet with an impact area of 12 mm.

2) 4 lbs falling under gravity from 4 feet with an impact area of 4 mm.

Many Thanks
