my answer: mv^2 / 2 + GMm/r

feedback: It appears that there may be a sign error associated with at least one term in your expression. Your answer is very close unfortunately there are additional terms in your equation that are not necessary.

You're answer should look similar to this outline
E= KE + PE
E = (1/2)mC^(2) + mgz
Power = E/t
Total energy=Potential energy+Kinetic energy E Total = [1/2(mv2)]  - (GMm/r)
Notice the minus sign within the final equation
