Answer :

Initial velocity, u =?

Final velocity, v = 0


Acceleration due to gravity, g = - 10m/s2


Height, h=5 m


(a) For a freely falling body:


v2 = u2 + 2gh


(0)2 = u2+ 2 x (-10) x 5


0= u2 – 100


u2 = 100


So, u = 10m/s


(b) Using relation, v=u + gt


0 = 10 + (-10) t


-10 = -10 t


t = 1sec
