a) what is its speed after falling to 2.00s
motion formula $v=u+at$
so
$v = 6.00 \dfrac{m}{s}
+ 9.81 \dfrac{m}{s^{\cancel{2}}}{2.00 \cancel{s}}
= 27.6 \dfrac{m}{s}$
b) How far does it fall in 2.00s
distance formula $d= ut + \dfrac{1}{2}at^2$
so
$d=6.00\dfrac{m}{\cancel{s}}\cdot 2.00\cancel{s}
+ \dfrac{1}{2}\cdot 9.81 \dfrac{m}{s^{\cancel{2}}}{(2.00s)^2}
=12.00m+19.62m=31.6m$
c) What is the magnitude of its velocity after falling 10.0m?
graph $a-t, v-t, \textit{ and } y-t$ graphs for the motion.

ok don't have book answer to these and a little ?? on c} and graph

What information does the original problem statement give prior to asking parts (a), (b), and (c)?

4-39 A student throws a water balloon vertically downward from the top of a building. The balloon leaves the thrower's had with a speed of $6.00 m/s$ Air resistance may by ignored, so the water balloon is in free fall after it leaves the throwers hand

(a) $v(t) = v_0 - gt$

$v(2) = -6 - g(2) = -25.6 \, m/s$

speed is $|v| = |-25.6| = 25.6 \, m/s$

(b) $\Delta y = v_0 t - \dfrac{1}{2}gt^2$

$\Delta y = -6(2) - \dfrac{1}{2}g(2^2) = -31.6 \, m$

(c) $v_f^2 = v_0^2 - 2g \Delta y$

$v_f = -\sqrt{(-6)^2 - 2g(-10)} = -15.2 \, m/s$

$|v_f| = 15.2 \, m/s$

ok, much mahalo

look like I didn't subtract :eek:
