Problem 17DQ

A dripping water faucet steadily releases drops 1.0 s apart. As these drops fall, does the distance between them increase, decrease, or remain the same? Prove your answer.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 17DQ The distance between different drops released in intervals of 1 second will not be same. As we know the all are accelerating with the acceleration of 9.8 m/s , and the distance depends on the factor at by the equations of motion, the distance of different droplets will not be same. The equation of motion is S = ut + 1/2 gt . So, with every passing second the drop covers more and more distance, while the droplet which got released after 1 second of it will cover less distance. CONCLUSION: So, the distance between different drops will not be same.
