Please help me with the following problem, I have veiwed the answers to the other problems like this one and were told they were incorrect: If you do not consider air resistance, gravity causes a falling object to descend a distance of (9.8)t2 where t is the time in seconds. If a 16 pound bowling ball is dropped from the tallest building in the world, how many meters does it fall during the 4th and 5th seconds combined.
