An object is dropped from rest at a height of 150 m and simultaneously another object is dropped from rest at a height 100 m. What is the difference in their heights after 2 s if both the objects drop with same accelerations? How does the difference in heights vary with time?

Answer :

let h1=150m and h2=100m

Then, the difference in height h=(150-100)m=50 m


Distance travelled by first body in 2s is given as,


Distance=ut + at2


Now, if the Initial speed(u) = 0(when the object was at rest)


Ans, the time, t =2s


So, by substituting the values, we get,


S = 0 +g× (2)2


S = 0 +g× 4


S = 0 +× 9.8 × 4


S = 19.6 m


So, After 2s, the height of the first object, h1=150-19.6


So, After 2s height of the second object, h2=100-19.6


Thus, after 2s difference of height= h1 - h2 (150-19.6) - (100-19.6) =50 m


So, after 2s difference height will be 50 m = initial difference in height


Thus, the difference in height of the object will remain same because the height does not vary with time.
