Question

1) A basic law of physics states that, when an object is dropped in a near-vacuum, the distance it falls varies directly with the square of the elapsed time. If an object dropped in a near-vacuum falls 64 feet in 2 seconds, how far does it fall in 3 seconds? (Assume that the object does not hit the ground before 3 seconds have elapsed).
