Alfred has just developed a new super ball and you have been asked to test its rebound capabilities. From
your experiment you have found if you drop the ball from a height of 250 centimeters the first bounce average is 180 cm.
rebound ratio = ?
Using this rebound ratio, predict the height of the bounce if you dropped the ball from a height of 50 feet. Explain
how you got your answer

Steve,
To get the height if dropped from 50 feet, just use the same bounce ratio.
This assumes that the ball rebounds just the same if dropped from a height 6 times as high.
