Free fall

How long does the stone fall freely into a depth of 80m? What speed will it hit the bottom of the abyss?

Result

t =  4 s
v =  40 m/s

Solution:

s=12gt2 g=10 m/s2 s=80 m t=2 sg=2 8010=4 ss=\dfrac{ 1 }{ 2 } g t^2 \ \\ g=10 \ \text{m/s}^2 \ \\ s=80 \ \text{m} \ \\ t=\sqrt{ \dfrac{ 2 \cdot \ s }{ g } }=\sqrt{ \dfrac{ 2 \cdot \ 80 }{ 10 } }=4 \ \text{s}
v=g t=10 4=40 m/sv=g \cdot \ t=10 \cdot \ 4=40 \ \text{m/s}



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
