(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); [SOLVED] Kinetic Energy Question

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

An object is dropped off a cliff of height h and is subjected to an average force of air resistance of F. If the object has a mass of m the KE it gains during the fall will be equal to.

a. mgh

b. mgh + f

c. mgh -f

d. mgh+ fh

e. mgh - fh

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

What I'm not sure about is does air resistance even factor in KE which would then make it answe A or does it add or subtract to it.
