Practice Free Fall (problems, don't actually try it)

**Explain the concept of free fall in physics.**

**What are the kinematic equations used to solve free fall problems?**

**A ball is dropped from a height of 20 meters. Calculate the time it takes for the ball to hit the ground.**

**A stone is thrown vertically upward with an initial velocity of 20 m/s. Calculate the maximum height reached by the stone.**

**A car is moving at a constant velocity of 10 m/s. If it accelerates uniformly at a rate of 2 m/s^2, how long will it take for the car to come to a complete stop?**

**A rocket is launched vertically upward with an initial velocity of 50 m/s. Calculate the time it takes for the rocket to reach its maximum height.**

**A basketball is dropped from a height of 3 meters. Calculate the speed of the basketball just before it hits the ground.**
