30 m

General Formulas and Concepts:

Energy

Gravitational Potential Energy: • m is mass (in kg)
• g is gravity
• h is height (in m)

Kinetic Energy: • m is mass (in kg)
• v is velocity (in m/s²)

Law of Conservation of Energy

Explanation:

Step 1: Define

Identify variables

[Given] m = 0.8 kg

[Given] g = 10 m/s²

[Given] U = 240 J

[Solve] h

Step 2: Solve for h

1. [LCE] Substitute in variables [Gravitational Potential Energy]:                      (0.8 kg)(10 m/s²)h = 240 J
2. Multiply:                                                                                                             (8 kg · m/s²)h = 240 J
3. Isolate h [Cancel out units]:                                                                             h = 30 m
