## Problem Statement

**Upton Chuck is riding the Giant Drop at Great America. If Upton free falls for 2.60 seconds, what will be his final velocity and how far will he fall?**

## Solution

**Final velocity V = U + gt**

Here U = 0,

so V = gt = 10 . 2.6 m/s = 26 m/s

The height travelled = H = Ut + ½ g t^{2}**As U =0, we get H = ½ g t ^{2} **

**= ½ . 10 . 2.6**
