Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you can subtract the mass from both sides which shows that everything falls at the same rate

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so if you plug in the velovity and solve for h which is the height

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2is this for conservation of energy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No this is only for the height of the building

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The formula I gave you is the conservation of energy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In this case \(g\) is the gravitational acceleration we talked about in the previous problem.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You cannot solve this with kinematics there are too many unknowns

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What do you mean you can't solve it with kinematics?

Decart

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yeah I guess you could solve for time in the acceleration then plug it in the average velocity.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I was talking about the \(g\) in your formula.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Though technically speaking, depending on whether they are on the 'energy' part or the 'kinematic' part of the course decides which method they should use.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2that is why I was asking

wio

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Last question was a 'kinematic' one so maybe it must be kinematics.

Decart

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2acceleration of gravity = velocity final minus velocity inital divided by time.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@omnomnom Have you talked about work or energy in your class yet?

wio

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Like potential energy or kinetic energy?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It is something you will learn in the future, most likely.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes solve for time then plug into \[\frac{ d }{ t }=\frac{ v _{f}+v _{i} }{ 2 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@omnomnom This is a two step problem. First you want to figure out how long it took to fall. Then you want to use that to figure out how far it fell.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh okay so what equation do i use.... is is\[d =Vi( t)+ a \frac{ 1 }{ 2 }(t^2) \]

wio

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can't use that equation until you find time though.

Decart

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[a=\frac{ v _{f}v _{i} }{ t }\]

Decart

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you know a and both velocities

omnomnom

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But we need the time :( Cant i just quess the answer?

wio

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, \(a\) is the same as last time... \(9.81m/s^2\)

wio

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You are not supposed to guess, because there is already a way to find the answer.

omnomnom

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but...... Whats the way ?

Decart

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2then plug in the time into your equation and find x

omnomnom

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we change the equation now?

Decart
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you want the height of the building

Decart

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2do you understand the kinematic equations
