The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2. At what height above the ground will the two objects pass each other?

Answer in units of m.

**bobpursley**, Sunday, February 14, 2010 at 4:31pmThe height of each is

h1=78+(-5)t-4.9t^2

h2=0+50t-4.9t^2

set them equal, solve for t.

Then put time t into either, to solve for final height.

**Joe**, Thursday, October 4, 2012 at 7:09pmThe acceleration due to gravity on planet X is

one fifth that on the surface of the earth.

If it takes 3.9 s for an object to fall a certain

distance from rest on earth, how long would

it take to fall the same distance on planet X?
