    Can you tell me the velocity with which it hits the ground ? During 1st fall, i.e. 100 feet.

    this is a precalc problem not a physics problem so it doesn't give the velocity. but the answer's 300 if that helps. however i have no idea how my teacher got this answer.

    Oh am sorry, I read half of the velocity, my bad It is an infinite GP 100 50 25 12.5 . . . you just add them all. Have you read about infinite GP ?
