Homework Help: Need Serious Physics Help

    Energy Question?

    OK lets say that PE=15000 or 11250 J (J=Joules) how would you find out what the KE is?

    just want to find out how to get the Kinectic Energy?

    You need to show equations and an attempt at the answer

    Saying that potential energy is 11250J is meaningless really.
    Is there some sort of problem associated with the potential energy? A body falling? Something of that sort?
