A stone is dropped from rest at an initial height h above the surface of the earth. Show that the speed with which it strikes the ground is v=sqrt(2gh)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm just not sure where to get started. I fully understand how to integrate/derive. I am having trouble understanding what equations to start with.

EDIT: I assume that I have to derive/integrate somewhere. I understand how to get sqrt(2gh) just by re-arranging the equation v_{f}^{2}= v_{i}^{2}+2gh
