Can someone please tell me what I did wrong for Part A. I used this equation: KE=1/2m*v^2. The answer I got was 58.8J but its wrong. Am I using the right equation?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A 47.0 g golf ball is driven from the tee with an initial speed of 50.0 m/s and rises to a height of 23.4 m.

(a) Neglect air resistance and determine the kinetic energy of the ball at its highest point. ?J

(b) What is its speed when it is 7.0 m below its highest point?

46.7m/s
