How do you calculate the velocity of a quarter dropped from a tower after 10 seconds?

  • 9th grade -

    It depends -- there's terminal velocity, peak velocity, average velocity, etc....what exactly are you looking for?

    can i have your number so we can text

  • 9th grade -

    im looking for average velocity

  • 9th grade -

    The formula for average velocity is:

    position2 - position1
    -------------------------
    time2 - time1

    It looks like there is not enough information to figure out the average velocity of the quarter. You would need the height of the tower to fill in all the variables to successfully solve the equation.
