If a ball is dropped near the surface of the earth, then the distance it falls is directly proportional to the square of the time it has fallen. A ball is dropped over the edge of a vertical cliff and falls 39.2 meters in two seconds.
Determine the distance (in meters) the ball would have dropped in 3.5 seconds.
The ball would have dropped ____ meters. Round your answer to two decimal places.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it tells you the distance is proportional to the square of the time so distance = kt^2 \[\frac{ d1 }{ d2 } =\frac{ t1^{2} }{ t2^{2} }\] you know all except d2  so solve for d2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in the first scenario d=32.9 and t=2 in the second scenario d is unknown and t= 3.5 put those 3 values into the equation to solve the unknown distance
