1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data In the final second of its free fall, an object covers half the height of its total fall. From what height did it fall? 2. The attempt at a solution I know that the velocity and acceleration at the final second must be enough for the object to cover half the height. Distance traveled due to acceleration: = (0.5)(9.81)(1^2) = 4.905 meters. I understand that whatever the velocity is, it must be enough for the object to travel (h/2) - 4.905 meters. H being the total height. However, this is where I am having trouble.
