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

A ball of mass 0.5kg is dropped from a height of 5m what is the greatest velocity it will have just before hitting the ground?

2. Relevant equations

f=m*g

a= change in velocity/change in time

3. The attempt at a solution

m=.5kg

h=5m

a=9.8m/s

f=m*g

f= .5*9.8= 4.9N

I don't know what other equations to use to find velocity
