- Homework Statement
- A supervisor 1.8m tall visits a construction site a brick resting at the edge of a roof 50m above the ground suddenly falls at the instant when the brick has fallen 30m without encountering any air resistance, the supervisor sees the brick coming down directly towards him from above as shown in the following figure. (attached) Calculate the speed of the brick after it has falled 30 m from the roof

- Relevant Equations
- Speed=distance/time

acceleration of gravity is 10m/s^2

Since the brick has fallen 30m and the acceleration of gravity is 10m/s^2 the brick would have fallen 3 seconds speed of brick would then be 30/3 leaving the answer at 10m/s?I am new to physics and this question has left me stumped
