If you climb a ladder and drop a ball from different heights, due to gravity, both balls -- one at higher height, another at lower height, both would have "same speed", but the ball dropped at higher height, would have "greatest speed"?


Expert Answer

Step 1

At higher height, the ball drops down from the ladder. During the duration of the fall, the ball’s gravitational pot...
