An object is dropped from a platform 100 feet high. Ignoring wind resistance, what will its speed be when it reaches the ground?

_____ ft/s

Please help me!!!

  • Physics -

    height(h)= 100ft
    since the object starts at rest,
    initial speed(U)=0
    Final speed (v)= ?
    since the object is falling under the influence of gravity and downwards
    a=g= 32.17 ft/s^2
    we have
    v2= 0+ 2*32.17*100
    v2= 6434
    the final speed was 80.21 f/s

    An object is dropped from a platform 100 feet high.ignoring wind resistance,how long will it take to reach the ground ?

  • Physics -


    acceleration due to gravity= 32 ft/s^2
    100= 1/2(32)t^2


    100/16 = 6.25

    t^2= 6.25

    t= 2.5

  • Physics -

    Light travels approximately 982,080,000 ft/s, and one year has approximately 32,000,000 seconds. A light year is the distance light travels in one year.

    State the speed in mi/s, using scientific notation. (1 mile = 5280 feet exactly, by definition; i.e., this is not a measurement.)

  • Physics -

    An object is thrown directly up (positive direction) with a velocity (vo) of 20.0 m/s and do= 0. How high does it rise (v = 0 cm/s at top of rise). Remember, acceleration is -9.80 m/s2.
