Catch It!

Ling and Mei are visiting a waterpark to try out a double-sided water slide which looks like this:

Being a risk-taker, Ling opts for the steep side: essentially a free fall. Mei, on the other hand, prefers to avoid high speeds, so she chooses the gentle side. Both sides of the slide are equipped with sensors measuring each visitor's final speed, i.e. the speed at which they reach the water surface.

Assuming no friction, how much greater will Ling's final speed be compared to Mei's? Keep reading to find out, or slide straight into today's challenge.
