Douglass Houghton Workshop, Section 1, Wed 10/26/11 Worksheet Kangaroo 1. We still have this 1 /z scale model of the White House, which we plan on blowing up. We want to decide what speed to run the film at, so that when we slow it down to 24 frames per second, we get a realistic explosion. (a) Near the surface of the earth, the force of gravity makes falling objects accelerate downward at the constant rate of 32 ft/sec 2 . What, therefore, is v ( t ), the velocity of a falling object t seconds after it is dropped? Note v ( t ) is acceleration. (b) What, then, is h ( t ), the height of an object t seconds after it is dropped from a height H ? Note h ( t ) is velocity and h (0) = H . (c) How long does it take an object to fall from the top of the real White House, which is 70 ft high? So how many frames should we show for the fall? (d) How long does it take an object to fall from the top of the model? (e) How many frames per second should you film at?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
