3. Consider a freely falling object.
a. What is the acceleration (in m/s2) after 5 seconds of fall?
b. What is the acceleration (in m/s2) after 10 seconds of fall?
c. What is the velocity (in m/s) after 5 seconds of fall?
d. What is the velocity (in m/s) of 10 seconds of fall?

  • Physics -

    a. the acceleration is a function of gravity...it is essentially constant

    b. see a.

    gravitational acceleration (g) is 9.8 m/s^2
    ... for every second you fall, you go 9.8 m/s faster

    for c. and d. , multiply the free-fall time by the acceleration (g)
