Solution

Given: Time (t) = 5 s, height (s) = 5 m

To find: Gravitational acceleration (g)

Formula: s = ut + `1/2 "gt"^2`

Calculation: From formula,

5 = `0 xx 5 + 1/2 "g"(5)^2`

∴ `5 = 1/2 "g" xx 25`

∴ g = `2/5`

∴ g = 0.4 m/s

The gravitational acceleration of the planet is 0.4 m/s2.

Concept: Acceleration Due to Gravity (Earth’s Gravitational Acceleration)
