Hey guys how are you all.
Lets see, I'm not a physicist (mathematician actually) but I'm involved in this discussion (some may be aware...) and would like some physics help. (This is not an assessment, tutorial, university, school etc question.)
Here's the scenario. (Hope I word everything right)
An object with a weight of 100N has a force applied to it so that it takes 4 seconds to fall 0.5m at a constant speed.
We then repeat except...
The same object then has a force applied to it so that it takes 0.5 seconds to fall 0.5m at a constant speed.
How do I calculate the forces applied (I guess they would be applied upwards) on the object in both scenarios?
To save you time... An object free falling 0.5m takes 0.3192754285 seconds.
