How high was the copter when the package hit? Honors Supplement 1. If, from a height of 62m, Galileo accidentally dropped one of the cannon balls 0.5sec before the other, with what velocity would the second ball I have to be thrown downward to reach the ground at the same time as the first ball? [-5.3 m/s] 2. A flowerpot is dropped and passes by a window below. It takes 0.15 sec to travel from the top to the bottom of the 1.6 m tall window as it falls to the ground.
