Question

 

A stone is dropped from the roof of a high building. A second stone is dropped 1.00 second later. How far apart are these stones when the second one has reached a speed of 15.0 m/s? Acceleration is a given: 9.8 m/s^2

Write us your full solution, showing all of the steps we talk about in class. Also include the x(t), v(t), and a(t) graphs for both stones. (You can put the respective graphs for both stones on the same set of axes).
