Hi, I'm not sure how to word my question, so I will just state it upfront.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is the importance of [tex]\upsilon[/tex] = [tex]\sqrt{2gh}[/tex] in physics?

I've seen it in escape velocity problems, though with an R instead of h. I've seen it with conservation of momentum applications, and it's similar to PE = mgh. Yesterday my professor was discussing Bernoulli's equation and this equation came up again.

I was just wondering how it can be applied to so many different situations...
