Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Jane on Monday, October 19, 2009 at 11:16pm.

a) Newton's law of motion states that the acceleration acting on a falling body
(assuming no other forces) is 
x" = -g, where x(t) is the height of the object
above the ground, t is time, and g is the gravitational constant. Find a general
expression to describe the height of the object above the ground with respect
to time, t; i.e. find x(t).
(b) Suppose the object is dropped from a height of 100 units (so x'(0) = 0 and
x(0) = 100), how long will it take to hit the ground?
