#### Question

Two balls of masses in ratio 1 : 2 are dropped from the same height find

a) the ratio between their velocities when they strike the ground and

b) the ration if the forces acting on them during motion.

#### Solution

a) Initial velocity, u = 0 m/s

Final velocity = v

`M_1 : M_2 = 1 : 2`

From equation `v^2 - u^2 = 2gh`

So `v = sqrt(2gh)`

`v_1/v_2 = sqrt(2gh)/sqrt(2gh) = 1/1 = 1 : 1`

b) Force = mg

`F_1/F_2 = (m_1g)/(m_2g) = 1/2 = 1 : 2`

Is there an error in this question or solution?
