I drop an object from a height = x foot.
x = 10
The object rebounds to .75 of it's previous height.
Find total distance bounces travelled:
So for this one I said initial drop plus rebound (down and up) = 10 + 15 = 25 foot.
This process repeats til it comes to rest. The total distance I came up with doing this is 69.99999 feet after about 65 iterations.
Instead of 65 lines of cacluations what is a formula that models this?
