A water balloon dropped from a dorm window does not break on impact. From what height would you need to drop the balloon to double the speed of the balloon?

  • Physical Science -

    V^2 is proportional to height.

    V is proportional to sqrt(Height)

    If sqrtH doubles, H must increase by a factor of 4.
