Chap. 7, #36. (II) A ball is dropped from a height of 1.50 m and rebounds to a height of 1.20 m. Approximately how many rebounds will the ball make before losing 90% of its energy?

  • Physics 1 (college) -

    energy retained each bounce: 1.2/1.4=6/7

    (6/7)^n=.1

    log of each side
    n log (6/7)= -1
    solve for n.

    change that fraction to 1.2/1.5 or 4/5. I misread.

  • Physics 1 (college) -

    I don't understand where you got .1 and then -1 from. Can you explain that?
