Q...A man in a balloon rising vertically with an acceleration of 4.9 m/s2 releases a ball 2 seconds after the balloon is let go from the ground. The greatest height above the ground reached by the ball is: a. 14.7 m b. 19.6 m c. 9.8 m d. 24.5 m

```							 Let Ub and Vb be the velocities at t=0 and t=2 for the balloon And accelaration of balloon(Ab)=4.9=g/2 m/s2 Vb=Ub+(Ab)t       (Ub=0) from this we get, Vb=g m/s   (Upwards) and from ,s=(Ub)t+(1/2)(Ab)t^2          (where s is the hieght at which the ball is dropped) we get s=g meters when the ball is dropped its initial velocity is gm/s upwards(due to balloon) hence velocity of ball at ground(using third eq of motion): V^2=g^2 + 2(g)(g)        (since,,initial vel of ball=g m/s,,,acc due to gravity=g m/s2,,,displacement=g meters) v^2=3g^2------------------------------------1 If we want to find the greatest hieght(to which it rises)then it should rebound back with same velocity(elastic collision) therfore , v^2=u^2-2(g)(H)---------------------------2   (Where H is the max hieght it reaches) in this case v=0 since at the greatest hieght the vel of ball is zero and u^2=3g^2  (from eq--1) therefore eq 2 becomes: 3g^2=2gs ie,s=3/2(g)=14.7m
