An object falls a distance h from rest.
If it travels half the height h in the last 1.00 s, find:
(a) the time
(b) the height h of its fall.
(c) Explain the physically unacceptable solution of the
quadratic equation in t that you obtain.
I am trying to use the:
{y=y(initial) + v(initial)  1/2gt^2}
equation to for example say that y = h/2 and y(initial) = h, assuming that the v(initial) is also 0m/s and g=9.81. Also, I am trying to apply the equation to the case where y = 0 and y(initial) = h/2, where t = 1s and v(initial) is unknown.
I just can't seem to get the right answer. Thanks all.
