Solution Verified by Toppr

Correct option is B)

∵d=2 1 gt 2

Therefore distance covered in 1

st second is = 2 1 g

Let it fall for n sec

∴7x=0+ 2 g (2n−1) ⇒7× 2 g = 2 g (2n−1)⇒2n=8⇒n=4 s Video Explanation

A body dropped from the top of a tower covers a distance

7 x

in the last second of its journey where

x

is the distance covered in first second. How much time does it take to reach the ground (Take

g = 10 m / s 2 )? A 3 s B 4 s C 5 s D 6 s Open in App Solution

The correct option is **B**

4 s

In first second, distance travelled

x = 1 2 × g × t 2 = 5 m (for g = 10 m / s 2 )

Distance travelled in last second

= 7 x = 35 m We know that S n = u + 1 2 a ( 2 n − 1 ) or 35 = 0 + 10 2 × ( 2 n − 1 ) ⇒ n = 4 ∴ t = 4 s Suggest Corrections 26
