Conservation of energy:

$\begin{array}{rcl}\mathbf{K}{\mathbf{E}}_{\mathbf{i}}\mathbf{+}\mathbf{P}{\mathbf{E}}_{\mathbf{i}}& \mathbf{=}& \mathbf{K}{\mathbf{E}}_{\mathbf{f}}\mathbf{+}\mathbf{P}{\mathbf{E}}_{\mathbf{f}}\\ \mathbf{P}{\mathbf{E}}_{\mathbf{i}}& \mathbf{=}& \mathbf{K}{\mathbf{E}}_{\mathbf{f}}\\ \mathbf{m}\mathbf{g}\mathbf{H}& \mathbf{=}& \frac{\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{2}}\mathbf{m}{\mathbf{v}}^{\mathbf{2}}\\ {\mathbf{v}}_{\mathbf{x}}& \mathbf{=}& \sqrt{\mathbf{2}\mathbf{g}\mathbf{H}}\end{array}$ ###### Problem Details
