Free Falling Question

  1. Feb 14, 2006 #1
    Hi Guys,

    Can someone help to answer this question?

    A rock is dropped from a 100m high cliff. Determine the ratio for the time taken by the rock to fall the first 50m to the time taken for it to fall the second 50m

    What equation would you use in this case ?
    What forces act on the object when it is falling down ?
    What is the initial position and velocity ?

    You need to show your work first. What have you done up till now ?
