Lesson Worksheet: Vertical Motion under Gravity Mathematics
In this worksheet, we will practice using the kinematics equations of uniform acceleration to model the vertical motion of a body with uniform acceleration due to gravity.
A stone was thrown down a well at 2 m/s. It reached the bottom in 1.5 seconds. Determine the depth of the well, given that the acceleration due to gravity 9.8 m/s2.
If an apple falls from a tree and takes 1.5 seconds to reach the ground, at what velocity does it hit the ground? Take the acceleration due to gravity .
A ball was projected upward from a window. It returned to the window 2.8 seconds after it had been projected. Find the maximum height that the ball reached above the window, given that the acceleration due to gravity is .
