You drop a ball from a height of 0.5 meter. Each curved path has 52% of the height of the previous path. a. Write a rule for the sequence using centimeters. The initial height is given by the term n = 1. b. What height will the ball be at the top of the third path?

a)  height =  50 (.52)^(n - 1)    cm     

 

b)  At  top of  3rd path  we  have   

 

50 (.52)^ ( 4 - 1)   =

 

50 (.52)^3*    ≈   7 cm.
