An object dropped from the top of a building falls...

An object dropped from the top of a building falls a distance that is directly proportional to the square of its falling time. We observe that the object falls \(4.59\) metres in \(0.97\) seconds. How far will the object fall in \(1.35\) seconds? Answer: metres (rounded to two decimal places) 

Answer

\(D = k t ^ { 2 }\) 

\(4.59 = k ( 0.97 ) ^ { 2 }\) 

\(1 < = 4.8 ^ { 8 }\) 

\(D = 4.88 ( 1.35 )\) 

\(D = 6.59\) metres
