A ball is dropped from the roof of a tower of height h.The total distance covered by it in the last second of its motion is equal to the distance covered by it in the first 3 seconds.What is the value of h?

Expert Answer:

Distance in first 3 second = 45m
Let t be time after dropping ball, V be speed of ball
Through calculation by velocity graph, distance travelled by ball between 4s and 5s = 45m
hence, last second =5s.
h = (5)(50)(1/2)
= 125m
