Time for Ball to Hit Floor
A ball with a horizontal speed of 1.25 m/s rolls off a bench 1.00 m above the floor.
How long will it take the ball to hit the floor?
The ball falls from 1 meter above the floor.
s = 1/2 g t2
g = 9.81 (acceleration of gravity )
t2 = 2s/g
= .452 s
How far from a point on the floor directly below the edge of the bench will the ball land?
Horizontally Distance = speed x time
speed = 1.25 m/s
time = .452 s
= 1.25 x .452
= .565 m
