the time period is easily calculated, but what do you mean by "distance on which the object decelerates after dropping" how do i calculate this?

The formula for calculating drop height is: height = force / mass x acceleration due to gravity. This is known as the Law of Conservation of Energy.

To determine the force of impact, you can use the formula: force = mass x acceleration due to gravity x height. This will give you the force in Newtons (N).

Yes, you can use the formula: height = force / mass x acceleration due to gravity. However, it is important to note that this calculation assumes no air resistance and a constant acceleration due to gravity.

Air resistance can affect the calculation of drop height by slowing down the object's acceleration due to gravity, therefore reducing the force of impact. This can result in a lower calculated drop height than the actual height.

Yes, there are other factors that can affect the accuracy of the calculated drop height. These include the shape and density of the object, as well as external forces such as wind or friction. It is important to consider these factors when using the formula to calculate drop height.
