Question

Two bodies are thrown vertically upward, with the same initial velocity of $$98\ m/s$$ but $$4\ sec$$ apart. How long after the first one is thrown when they meet ?

A
10 sec
B
11 sec
C
12 sec
D
13 sec

Solution

The correct option is C $$12\ sec$$Both the bodies meet each other at t secs after the first one is thrownDisplacement covered by first object in t secs $$s_1=ut-\dfrac{1}{2}gt^2=98t-\dfrac{1}{2}9.8\times t^2$$Displacement covered by second object in (t-4) secs $$s_2=98(t-4)-\dfrac{1}{2}9.8\times (t-4)^2$$Since they meet $$s_1=s_2$$We get $$t=12secs$$Physics
