(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

After falling 5m a rock has a velocity of v. What is the total distance the rock must fall to get a speed of 2v?

2. Relevant equations

GPE=mgh

Ke=1/2mv^2

3. The attempt at a solution

Should I set both equations equal to each other? I'm not even sure how to begin this one.
