A ball is dropped
A ball is dropped from a height of 5 m (s) above the sand level.
The same ball penetrates the sand up to 10 cm () before coming to rest.
Initial velocity of the ball, u = 0
and, a = g = 9.8 m/s2 (Acceleration due to gravity)
Using the equation of motion, we get:
Thus, the time taken by the ball to cover the distance of 5 m is 1.01 seconds.
Velocity of the ball after 1.01 s:
v = u + at
⇒ v = 9.8 × 1.01 = 9.89 m/s
Hence, for the motion of the ball in the sand, the initial velocity u2 should be 9.89 m/s and the final velocity v2 should be 0.
= 10 cm = 0.1 m
Again using the equation of motion, we get:
Hence, the sand offers the retardation of 490 m/s2.
