Question

If an object is dropped from a height of meters, the velocity (in ) at impact is given by v= √2gh , where g=9.8m/sec^2 is the acceleration due to gravity.

Required:
a. Determine the impact velocity for an object dropped from a height of 10 m.
b. Determine the height required for an object to have an impact velocity of 26.8 m/sec (~ 60 mph). Round to the nearest tenth of a meter.

A.) V = 14 m/s

B.) h = 36.6 m

Explanation:

Given the formula v = √2gh

where g = 9.8m/sec^2 is the acceleration due to gravity.

A.) Determine the impact velocity for an object dropped from a height of 10 m.

Substitute height h in the given formula

V = √2gh

V = √2 × 9.8 × 10

V = √196

V = 14 m/s

b. Determine the height required for an object to have an impact velocity of 26.8 m/sec (~ 60 mph). Round to the nearest tenth of a meter.

Substitute the velocity in the given formula and make height h the subject of formula.

26.8 = √2 × 9.8 × h

Square both sides

718.24 = 19.6h

h = 718.24 / 19.6

h = 36.64 m

h = 36.6 m
