Question

# The average velocity of a freely falling body is numerically equal to half of the acceleration due to gravity. The velocity of the body as it reaches the ground is numerically equal to:

A
g
B
g2
C
g2
D
2g
Solution
Verified by Toppr

#### We have average velocity =g2Since it is a free fall, average velocity, v=St=12gt2t=g2, where t is the time of descent and initial velocity is zero.
