## 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?

## 1007 Finding when and where the stones pass each other | Rectilinear Translation

**Problem 1007**

A stone is dropped from a captive balloon at an elevation of 1000 ft (304.8 m). Two seconds later another stone is thrown vertically upward from the ground with a velocity of 248 ft/s (75.6 m/s). If g = 32 ft/s^{2} (9.75 m/s^{2}), when and where the stones pass each other?

## 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?
