Well, we finally got to the acceleration topic, which, as you know, is the change in speed over time.

Condition:
The second body was thrown vertically upward next to the first one after t with the same speed v. How long after throwing the second body and at which height h the two bodies will collide?

Solution:
Distance traveled equation
$s(t)=v_0t+\frac{at^2}{2}$
For the first body
$y(t)=v(t+t_1)-\frac{g(t+t_1)^2}{2}$
For the second body
$y(t)=vt_1-\frac{gt_1^2}{2}$
Accordingly, when they meet, their coordinates will coincide, i.e.
$v(t+t_1)-\frac{g(t+t_1)^2}{2}=vt_1-\frac{gt_1^2}{2}$,
from which
$t_1=\frac{v}{g}-\frac{t}{2}$
After finding time, substitute it in any formula for the distance and find h
Gravitational acceleration is assumed to equal 9.8 m/s2
