Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok, so using the position function, you see that \[\Delta y = .5 g t^2 \] and \[\Delta y = .5g (t/3)^2 = (.5 g t^2) / 9\] when t =t/3 so essentially, you have, hh/9= 8h/9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the motion formula is \(S=ut + \frac{1}{2} at^2\), as u=0, and a=g, it simplifies to \(h=\frac{1}{2} aT^2\) when u=0, t=T/3, sub it in to get \(S= \frac{1}{2} a\frac{T^2}{9}=\frac{\frac{1}{2} aT^2}{9}=h/9\) subtracting the remaining height givens 8h/9dw:1354619702849:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then, since when T/3 > h/9 , then at that time, the object is h  h/9 above the ground, right?dw:1354620913980:dw
