Unformatted text preview: time_to_impact_with_ground=sqrt(2.*meters/gravity); %displacement = velocity_initial.*time+0.5.*gravity.*time.^2 %velocity_initial=0.0, so velocity_initial.*time will equal 0 velocity=velocity_initial+gravity.*time_to_impact_with_ground; %velocity=velocity_initial+acceleration.*time, the acceleration is gravity and the time is in seconds kinetic_energy=0.5.*mass_in_kg.*velocity.^2;...
