# Using the Kinematics Spreadsheet

# Example 1

##

Question:

"Suppose you drop a meatball off a cliff. If air
resistance can be neglected, what will be the meatball's
instantaneous speed after 6 seconds? How far will it have
fallen?"

## Solution:

The spreadsheet is already set up to solve this problem - just
find the pertinent values.

Oh, wait, you say - I need a more accurate calculation that uses
9.8 m/s/s for "g" instead of 10 m/s/s! All you need to do is change
the value of cell B3, and the spreadsheet adjusts automatically.
