    An object is thrown downward from the top of a building with an initial velocity of 30 m/s. Assuming a positive direction of y measured downward from the top, derive an expression for (a) the velocity and (b) the displacement as a function of time. Assume y(0)=0

    This is a free-fall problem, in which an object is moving under the influence of gravity - constant acceleration.

    some definitions:

    Acceleration: The rate of change of the velocity with time.
    Formula: a=dv/dt

    Velocity: The rate of change of the displacement with ...

    Solution Summary

    From the word - definition of velocity and acceleration, the solution shows how to derive the expressions for the velocity and acceleration and applying initial conditions.
