A stone of mass 'm' is dropped from rest at a height of 1.98 m. From what height would a stone of mass 'm/2' have to be dropped to have the same momentum upon striking the ground?

2. Relevant equations

?

3. The attempt at a solution

i don't understand 'm/2' doesn't this mean the first mass divided by 2 and so could i not just simple divide1.98 by 2?
