How did you get a negative value? g should come out to 9.8m/s^2 if h=0. Do you know why? To get 7.2m/s^2, h should certainly be positive.i used the formula and got a negative value?
Very correct.i used the mass of the meteor and i think i should have used the mass of earth?
The mass of the object does not matter. Every mass falls with the same acceleration (in a given gravitational field).thanks..i just want someone to clarify something..does the mass of the object not matter? if so, why not?
