an elastic ball rebounces 70% when it is dropped from the height. if it is dropped from 60m what is the total distance travelled by the ball

  • physics -

    60+.7*60(2)+.7^2(60)*2+...

    Sum from n=0 to large [2*60*.7^n) -60

    sum 120*.7^n -60

    geometric ratio,

    = 120/(1-.7) - 60
    = 120/.3 -60
    =400-60=340
