A flowerpot falls from a window sill 37.7 m

above the sidewalk.

What is the velocity of the flowerpot when

it strikes the ground? The acceleration of

gravity is 9.81 m/s2 .

Can you tell me the steps and why?

***FORGOT TO ASK

How much time does a passerby on the side-

walk below have to move out of the way before

the flowerpot hits the ground?

Answer in units of s

explain please?

For the velocity, equation PE and KE.

PE=KE

**mgh = (1/2)mv²**

and solve for v.

(both g and h are negative, y is positive upwards)

For time, use

**y=vi*t+(1/2)at²**

for vi=0, equation simplifies to

y=(1/2)at²

(Notice that both y and g are negative)
