A toy car rolled off of a ramp that was 2.5 m high. What was the car’s velocity when it exits the ramp?

    kinetic energy = potential energy

    (1/2)mv² = mgh

     

    Cancel m

    (1/2)v² = gh

     

    multiply both sides by 2

    v² = 2gh

     

    Plug in g = 9.8 and h = 2.5

    v² = (2)(9.8)(2.5)

    v² = 49 

     

    Take the square root of both sides

    v = 7 m/s <––––

    I don't know, you didn't say.  It's initial vertical velocity was zero.
