(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Gravity on a falling object causes the object to descend a distance of d=4.9t^2, where d is the distance in meters and t is the time in seconds. A bowling bll is dropped from the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France, which is 324 meters in height. If you neglect any type of air resistance, what is the distance (in meters) that the ball falls during the interval between the 8th and 9th second?

2. Relevant equations

d=4.9t^2 is given;

Gravity acceleration is 9.8 m/s^2

3. The attempt at a solution

Should we calculate the distance the bowling ball will fall in 8 seconds? then 9 seconds? then subtract the two? (Can't fall more than 324 meters)
