Question

A 0.6 kg ball is dropped from a height, h, of 2 meters (at point A). It hits the ground and bounces back up to a height of 1 meter (at point B) on its first bounce. (3 pts each)

a. What is the total energy of the ball at A?

b. What is the total energy of the ball at B?

c. Why did the ball not bounce back up to its starting height?

Answer #1

In this question we have to find the total energy possessed by the ball at points A and B.

A 2.0-kg ball is dropped from a height of 5.0 meters. It hits
the ground and bounces upward. If it reaches a height of only 3.2
m, determine the magnitude of the work done by non-conservative
forces in this situation.

A 1.5 kg ball is dropped from a height of 3 m above the ground
and upon striking the ground bounces up to a height of 2 m.
Ignoring air resistance, find the time it takes the ball to bounce
up to a height of 2 m after it is dropped.

(a)
A superball of mass 0.1kg is dropped from a height of 3 meters
above the floor. It then bounces up to a height of 2.6 meters. Find
the velocity of the ball the instant before it reaches ground
level. (Hint: use energy equations)
(b) Calculate the velocity the ball must have after the bounce
at the instant it leaves the ground the reach the height of 2.6
meters.
(c) Use these velocities to calculate the change i. momentum
of...

A 2.33 kg ball is
dropped from a height of 3 m. The ball then bounces back
upward a distance of 2.2 m. How much energy was lost in the
collision with the ground?
50.2 J
18.3 J
68.5 J
118.7 J
A 2.33 kg ball is
dropped from a height of 3 m. The ball then bounces back
upward a distance of 2.2 m. How much momentum does the ball have
immediately after bouncing off the ground?
5.13 kg m/s
21.6...

A rubber ball of mass m is dropped from a height h. If the ball
loses energy on each bounce so that its speed just after each
bounce is 90% of its speed just before each bounce, then Önd an
expression for the height the ball reaches after the 3rd bounce

A 2.0kg rubber ball is dropped from a height of 1.0m above the
floor.
a. Using energy (not
equations of motion), what is the ball’s speed just before it hits
the floor?
b. If it then bounces back to a height of 0.70m, what is the
speed of the ball, just as it leaves the ground? Again, use energy
rather than equations of motion.
c. How much kinetic
energy is lost?

A ball drops from a height of 2 meters. Each time it hits the
ground, it bounces up 68 percent of the height it fall. Calculate
the coefficient of restitution.

12. (a) A ball is dropped from a height of 10
meters. Each time it falls h meters, it rebounds
0.8h meters, i.e. it bounces to 80% of its previous
height.
In correct units, find the total distance traveled by the ball.

12. (b) You deposit $100 at the end of each
quarter in an account that pays 6% interest compounded quarterly.
Find the balance in the account after 20 years, in correct
units and rounded appropriately. How much...

A 1 kg cork ball is dropped from the height of 2 meters on a
spring with K = 350 N/m that is placed vertically right underneath
the cork ball. If the spring is 0.5 kg and the collision is
completely inelastic,
(a) How much energy will be stored in the spring?
(b) How much will the spring be compressed?

An object is dropped from a height of 50 meters starting at rest. Using the principle of conservation of energy, What is its final velocity just before it hits the ground? What is the time it takes to fall?
