It is given that A ball was dropped from the window of a building, 33.5 meters above the ground.
We have to solve two subproblems.
-How fast it is after 2 seconds?
-How long will it take if the final velocity is 25 m/s?
Now, to find how fast it is after 2 seconds.
We must use Newton's first law of motion, hence we have
v=u+gt−−−−(1), where t=2 sec, g = 9.8   m / s e c 2 ,initial velocity is u=0 m/sec, we have to find the final velocity v.
So, now we have
v = 0 + 9.8 × 2 = 19.6   m / s e c
hence, after 2 seconds it is fast by 19.6 m/sec
To find how long will it take if the final velocity is 25 m/s.
here, we have to find the time t, we have the final velocity is v=25 m/sec
Since, initial velocity is u=0 m/sec
Again, using Newton's first law of motion, hence we have
v=u+gt−−−−(1), put values in equation(1), so we have
25 = 0 + 9.8 × t t = 259.8 = 2.55102040816   s e c o n d s
hence, it will take 2.55102040816 seconds to reach at final velocity of 25 m/sec

A relief airplane is delivering a food package to a group of people stranded on a very small island. The island is too small for the plane to land on, and the only way to deliver the package is by dropping it. The airplane flies horizontally with constant speed of 220 mph at an altitude of 800 m. The positive x and y directions are defined. For all parts, assume that the "island" refers to the point at a distance D from the point at which the package is released, as shownin the figure. Ignore the height of this point above sea level. Assume that the acceleration due to gravity is g=9.80 .

Two objects, with masses m1 and m2, attract each other with force F. If the mass of m1 increased by a factor of two then the new gravitational force would be: 
F/4
2 F
4 F
F/2
