(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); measuring distance using Ek and Ep??!

okay, so the problem gives the following information

a car(1 tonne) is travelling at 75km/hr, up a hill. Assuming gravity is 9.8ms-2 , how far will the car travel?

so far ive done:

Ek= (.5 x m x v^2)

Ek= 36450000J

36450000=m x g x h

36450000=9800 x H

36450000/9800= H

H= 3719.38m

is this correct?
