## Homework Statement

Ok, I have 2 calculations I need help with.

First: For an object dropped from rest, the distance of fall "d" is related to the time of fall "t" and acceleration due to gravity "a" by

d = 1/2

*at*2 (2 as in squared)

So, DISTANCE is 4.42 meters and time of fall for object 1 is .70 seconds and object 2 is .79 seconds

Lets first get through that one, but just incase, ill add in the 2nd problem I must figure out:

2)if we measure "d" and "t" we can solve for the accerlation, "a":

a = 2

*d*/

*t*squared
