Problem: A ball is thrown straight up from the ground with speed v0. At the same instant, a second ball is dropped from rest from a height H, directly above the point where the first ball was thrown upward. There is no air resistance.Find the time at which the two balls collide.Find the value of H in terms of v0 and g so that at the instant when the balls collide, the first ball is at the highest point of its motion.
