A ball is released from the top of a tower of height h metres. It takes T seconds to reach the ground. What is the position of the ball in T/3 seconds?

  • h/9 metres from the ground

  • 7h/9 metres from the ground

  • 8h/9 metres from the ground

  • 17h/18 metres from the ground.


C.

8h/9 metres from the ground



second law of motion
straight s space equals ut space plus space 1 half space plus gT squared
or space straight h equals 0 plus 1 half gT squared space left parenthesis because space straight u equals 0 right parenthesis
therefore space straight T equals square root of open parentheses fraction numerator 2 straight h over denominator straight g end fraction close parentheses end root
At space straight t space equals space straight T over 3 straight s comma
straight s space equals space 0 plus space 1 half straight g space open parentheses straight T over 3 close parentheses squared
rightwards double arrow space straight s space equals space 1 half space straight g. straight T squared over 9
rightwards double arrow space straight s space equals space straight g over 18 space straight x space fraction numerator 2 straight h over denominator straight g end fraction space space space space open parentheses therefore space equals space square root of fraction numerator 2 straight h over denominator straight g end fraction end root close parentheses
therefore s = h/9 m
Hence, the position of ball from the ground= h- h/9 = 8h/9 m

When the branches of an apple tree are shaken, the apples fall down. Why?

The apple fall from an apple tree when it shaken because of inertia of rest. Apple is in a state of rest and when the tree is suddenly shaken, apples still tends to remain in it's same state of rest whereas branches move. 

So, the apples fall down.
