Homework Statement
How Long Does it Take An Object To Fall 5 m From Rest? (g=10 m/s^2)
Homework Equations
None
The Attempt at a Solution
I have no idea.
The time it takes for an object to fall 5 m from rest is calculated using the equation t = √(2d/g), where t is the time in seconds, d is the distance in meters, and g is the acceleration due to gravity (9.8 m/s²).
No, the mass of an object does not affect the time it takes to fall 5 m from rest. This is because the acceleration due to gravity is constant for all objects regardless of their mass.
Air resistance can affect the time it takes for an object to fall 5 m from rest by slowing down the object's descent. However, this effect is only significant for objects with a large surface area, such as a feather. For objects with a smaller surface area, the effect of air resistance is negligible.
Yes, the time it takes for an object to fall 5 m can vary depending on the gravitational pull of the planet. For example, on the moon where the gravitational acceleration is 1.62 m/s², it would take approximately 2.2 seconds for an object to fall 5 m from rest.
No, the height from which an object is dropped does not affect the time it takes to fall 5 m from rest. This is because the distance and acceleration due to gravity remains constant regardless of the starting height of the object.
