## Answers ( No )

From the question,

The mass of the skydiver,

The height from the Earth at which the skydiver is before falling,

Velocity, V of the skydiver

Let us take acceleration due to gravity to be ;

The mass of the skydiver, m=75kg

The height from the Earth at which the skydiver is before falling, h=100m

Velocity, V of the skydiver =60m/s

Potential energy, P.E can be calculated from the relation;

P.E = mgh

P.E =75000 J

Therefore, the gravitational potential energy of the skydiver is 75000 J

Kinetic energy,K.E

=135000 J

Hence the kinetic energy of the Skydiver is 135000 J

Answer:

Kinetic energy = 135 kJPotential energy = 73.5 kJExplanation:

Mass of sky diver = 75 kg

Velocity = 60 m/s

Height = 100 m

Kinetic energy is given by the expression, , where m is the mass and v is the velocity.

So Kinetic energy =

Potential energy is given by the expression, PE =mgh, m is the mass, g is the acceleration due to gravity value and h is the height.

So, Potential energy = 75*9.8*100 = 73500J = 73.5 kJ
