Question #4567

if you drop a bowling ball from a bridge and it takes 4.7 s to reach the water, how far above the water did you drop the ball?

Expert's answer

As the start velocity of the ball is equal to zero, then

H = 0.5gt^2 = 0.5*9.8*4.7^2 = 268.324 m.

H = 0.5gt^2 = 0.5*9.8*4.7^2 = 268.324 m.
