Will gravitational potential energy equal the same amount as kinetic energy?

I'm doing a Physics report on a free-fall ride and the data I've recorded from it has given me a gravitational potential of 2099160 N and a kinetic of 44250 N. I know that by the time the object reaches the ground the kinetic will equal the gravitational, but do external forces have an affect or anything?
