# Question #d571f

##### 1 Answer

The first drop travelled **1.0 m**.

#### Explanation:

The idea behind this problem is that you need to determine how much time passes *before* the second drop of water falls from the tap.

You know that the first drop covers **0.25 m** before the second drop is realeased. This means that it needed

to cover **0.25 m**.

The second drop is released **0.226** seconds *after* the first drop. Let's assume that the first drop travels a **total time** of **total time** of **0.226 seconds** later than the first drop.

The difference between the distance covered by the first drop and the distance covered by the second drop must be **0.75 m**, which means that you have

This is equivalent to

The distance between the two drops will be **0.75 m** after the first drop travelled for **0.452 seconds**.

Therefore,
