Answer to Question #15596 in Mechanics | Relativity for joe
instead of releasing the ball along the ramp, suppose you simply dropped it.It would fall about 5 meters during the first second. How far would it freely fall in 2 seconds?
Let's use the next formula:
H = gt²/2 = 9.81[m/s²]*(2[s])²/2 = 19.62 m.
So, in two seconds the ball will fall nearly 19.62 metres.
