Assuming the 'passing the window'part means 0.10s to go from the top to the bottom of the window... Then the veocity will be 1.18/0.1, so 11.8m/s. Accel will be that of 'g', so 9.8 m/s^2; and the initial velocity was 0 m/s. Use v^2=u^2+2as Solve for s, which ...

Initial velocity is given, final velocity is given, and the time is given. Using these, rearrange v=u+at to solve for a. The ball is slower after the bounce, so what sign will the acceleration be?
*September 7, 2012*

**physics**

a) use v=u +at solve for a b) use v^2=u^2+2as solve for s. v is final vel; u is initial vel; t is time and a is accel. S is displacement; or distance in this case.
