The distance, d, that an object falls is directly proportional to the square of the time, t, it has been in free fall. An object that has been in free fall for 8 seconds has fallen 1024 feet. Determine the distance the object has fallen if it has been falling for 3 seconds.

answered by I love my mom 
too bad you didn't show your work ...
d = kt^2, so
64k = 1024
k = 16
16*9 = 144
and in fact, g = 32 ft/s^2, so d = 1/2 g t^2 = 16t^2 👍
