## Two particles released from the same height and reached the base at the same time

**Problem**

Particles A and B are elevated 12 meters high from a given reference base. Particle A is projected down an incline of length 20 meters at the same time particle B is let to freely fall vertically. Find the velocity of projection of particle A if both particles strikes the base at the same time.

## 1010 Time to wait in dropping a stone | Rectilinear Translation

**Problem 1010**

A stone is thrown vertically up from the ground with a velocity of 300 ft per sec (91.44 m/s). How long must one wait before dropping a second stone from the top of a 600-ft (182.88-m) tower if the two stones are to pass each other 200 ft (60.96 m) from the top of the tower?

## 1005 Finding the depth of well by dropping a stone | Rectilinear Translation

**Problem 1005**

A stone is dropped down a well and 5 sec later, the sounds of the splash is heard. If the velocity of sound is 1120 ft/sec (341.376 m/s), what is the depth of the well?

## 1004 Relative velocity | Rectilinear Translation

**Problem 1004**

A ball is dropped from the top of a tower 80 ft (24.38 m) high at the same instant that a second ball is thrown upward from the ground with an initial velocity of 40 ft/sec (12.19 m/s). When and where do they pass, and with what relative velocity?

## Kinematics

**Motion of a Particle**

Particle is a term used to denote an object of point size. A system of particles which formed into appreciable size is termed as body. These terms may apply equally to the same object. The earth for example may be assumed as a particle in comparison with its orbit, whereas to an observer on the earth, it is a body with appreciable size. In general, a particle is an object whose size is so small in comparison to the size of its path.
