First right from energy 50 J, equated to 1/2 m v2 the value of v initial velocity could be calculated. Now using s = v2/ g we can calculate required S.

Now with m=2, we get v2 = 50 and using g as 10 m/s2 approx

we get required s = 5m

### Why are surge protectors rated in joules?

Joules is a unit of energy. The rating says how much energy they can absorb in a surge without being damaged. If damaged by a surge you better just throw it out.

### A ball is thrown straight up into the air at what position is the gravitational energy at its maximum?

There is no such thing as gravitational energy.The ball has the most potential energy at the apex of its throw.

### How do you make kinetic energy?

Kinetic Energy is moving energy. Here's a small experiment: 1. Throw a ball in the air (Straight up) 2. Watch it 3. When starts falling down, that's kinetic energy

### When a ball is throw straight up at what position is its kinetic energy at its maximum and at what position is gravitational potential energy at its maximum?

It's kinetic energy is highest when it is about half way to the top. The gravitational potential energy is highest when it is about to fall back down.

### A 0.5kg basketball is lifted 5m and thrown straight ahead with a speed of 2 ms What is the Kinetic Energy of the basketball?

At the time of the throw: Kinetic energy = 0.5*mass*(speed)^2 = 0.5*0.5*4 = 1J. There is also the potential energy at the time of the throw. If you want to know the kinetic energy at the time the ball hits the ground, that term must be added: Potential energy (with respect to the ground) at the time of throw = mass*gravity*height = 0.5*9.8*0.5 = 2.45 J.

### How do you throw a ball has hard as you can and get it back without hitting something?

Throw it straight up.

### Do players need more energy to throw or pass a basketball?

The players do not need energy to throw or pass a basketball

### When you throw a matter from a height why mechanical energy is not conserved?

When you throw matter from a height, mechanical energy is not conserved by you, but it is by the matter. You are exerting mechanical energy to throw the object, and the matter is conserving it by not having to do any work to move.
