Ben eats a bowl of rice as he walks across the San Francisco Bridge. When he is finished, he drops his empty bowl 67m down to the bay water. What speed does it hit the water with?

  • APS -

    s = 4.9t^2
    67 = 4.9t^2
    t = 3.7

    the bowl hits the water in 3.7 seconds

    v = at = 9.8*3.7 = 36.3m/s
