A ball 'A' when thrown vertically upward reaches the balcony of a house 100m high. At the instant, when 'A' is thrown vertically upward, other ball

'B' is dropped from the balcony. When and where will the balls pass each other....??


D = ut+1/2gt^2

g= 10m/s^2

by which point the free falling ball will be fallen by 25m 
Hence ans will be 75 m

Let the both meet at time t
A covers distance x in time t
and B covers distance 100-x in time t
let u be velocity of A with which it is projected
so when A is at 100 m its velocity is zero
so -u²=2(-10)(100)
so 100-x=1/2(10)t²=5t² ...(1) for B
 and x=10√20t-5t²....(2)
add (1)+ (2)
they meet after √5 secs
so they meet at 75 m ground

@Manitkapoor2 ...... how did u get x=10√20t-5t² ...??..(2)
well from s=ut-1/2at^2
For A intial velocity u=10(20)^0.5 and a=g=10
so x=10(20)^0.5t-1/2(10)t^2
