Hi friendly physics gurus. I'm trying to find equations to help answer a question I have inside my own head. I know the weight of an object (w=170g). I know the object will be subject to a shock of (1500G and time to stop t=0.5ms). My question is: what's that like in terms of how high in the air it falls? What I would like to learn is how I can come up with equations to determine the equivalent 'drop-height' this 1500G @ 0.5ms test will simulate. So far, I only understand that 1G = 9.81 m/s². I get lost when I try to use an acceleration equation d = 1/2 at² because I understand that equation to answer the amount of distance it took to stop the object from the moment of impact (initial velocity at the moment of impact) to final velocity of 0. But I'm trying to calculate how high the object was before it was dropped to experience that impact. (I think I'm getting confused on initial/final velocities and times and how they relate. When I think about how I am confused about those variables, I get even more confused.) Any takers? Are there other variables I'm unaware of at this time that could be useful?
