The distance traveled by a falling object is given by the formula d = 0.5gt2 …where d = distance from which the object is falling, g = the force of gravity, and t = time (in seconds). a) Solve this equation for g, b) Use your formula to determine the force of gravity if a baseball takes 10 seconds to hit the ground after being dropped from a height of 480 feet. Show all steps in your work.
