Falling Objects Find the time that it takes for the velocity of a falling object to increase from 4 f t / s to 100f t / s . Use the equation v = v 0 + 32 t ,where v is the final velocity of the falling object, v 0 is the initial velocity, and t is the time it takes for the object to fall.

To determine

The time that it takes for the velocity of a falling object to increase from 4 ft/s to 100 ft/s.

Explanation

Given information: The equation v=v+32t where v is the final velocity of the falling object, v is the initial velocity and t is the time that it takes for the object to fall.

Calculation:

v=v+32t(Given)

v=4v=100

Therefore, the given equation becomes 100=4
