Answer:It will take 30 seconds to reach the ground, and it will be travelling at 294 m/s when it does so. This means that its average velocity was 147 m/s.

Explanation:Since the initial velocity of a dropped object is 0, we can make this the equation:

The final velocity can be calculated with the formula:

Once again, since there is no initial velocity:

Since the initial velocity is 0, the average vertical velocity is 294/2=147 m/s.

Hope this helps!
