What are you looking for? Letâ€™s dig in quickly

## Explanation

• When a ball bounces, it rises to 3/4 of the height from which it fell.
• The ball is dropped from a height of 32m.

In this question; we need to find out the 3/4 of the given value i.e. 32.

• First time when it falls it goes (3 x 32)/4 = 24m high.
• Second time it will go (3 x 24)/4 = 18m high.
• In third bounce it will go (3 x 18)/4 = 13.5m high.

## To Find

Height of ball at the third bounce = ?

## Solution

Given height = 32m

First bounce = Âľ x 32 = 24m

Second bounce = Âľ x 24 = 18m

Third bounce = Âľ x 18 = 13.5m answer

## Conclusion

When a ball bounces, it rises to 3/4 of the height from which it fell. If the ball is dropped from a height of 32m, it will rise13.5m at the third bounce.
