Problem: A student throws a water balloon vertically downward from the top of a building. The balloon leaves the throwers hand with a speed of 6.05 m/s . Air resistance may be ignored, so the water balloon is in free fall after it leaves the throwers hand.What is its speed after falling for a time 2.05 s ?How far does it fall in a time of 2.05 s ?What is the magnitude of its velocity after falling a distance 11.1 m ?
