1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data An object is released from a height of 50m. How far has the object travelled during the 3rd second of fall? 2. Relevant equations d = Vi*T + 1/2at^2 Doesn't work though - answer provided is 24.5m. 3. The attempt at a solution I did a simple distance at 3 seconds with 9.81 m/s^2 as acceleration, got 29.43m. Using the formula above I got 44.45m - again, not 24.5m as provided for answer. Thanks a lot!
