We have been given an assignment with the question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

"How does the height of a body falling through the air effect its velocity?"

It's clear that as the height the object is dropped from, the greater the velocity of the object will be. However, I was wondering if anybody could give me any help with some equations/maths that proves this. I realise this is simple stuff, however I can't quite get my head around the thought and think of the equation that would be used.

I would appreciate any equation based help to be of a relatively simple nature as my Physics is not very advanced.

Also, any help with how the below equation can help to prove that height will increase the velocity of a falling object would be appreciated to.

V2 = 2gh

V2 being V squared.

Thank you,
