Let the body hit the floor.

Classical Mechanics Level 3

A body is dropped from a certain height \(h.\) The ratio of the distance traveled by \((n-3)\) seconds to the distance it travels in the \((n-3)^{\text{th}}\) second is \(4:3\). Suppose the body falls down to the ground in a total of \(n\) seconds, find the height of the building, \(h\).

Assumptions and Details

  • \(g=10\) m/s\(^2\)
  • The body is not a corpse, simply a mass.
  • Neglect wind resistance.
