I have a kinematics problem, and it goes like this.
A superhero, Ironman is flying upwards at a constant velocity of v = 20m/s. At a certain time a spherical tool he was carrying falls from his hand. (note: imagine the spherical tool is just a metallic ball) For the next 2 seconds the ball falls under the influence of gravity. Then due to air resistance, reaches terminal velocity at 2seconds.
I wish to calculate the constant velocity it reaches after 2 seconds and the distance it fell in the 2 seconds.
If I try to calculate its displacement/distance, does this ball have an initial velocity after it gets let go.
d = v1*t + (1/2)gt^2 ( where g = 9.8m/s^2)
Will v1=0, or will it be equal to v = +20m/s or -20m/s.
Hope someone can provide some guidance!
