Question

A person standing at the edge of a cliff throws one ball straight up and another ball straight down at the same initial speed. Neglecting air resistance, the ball to hit the ground below the cliff with the greater speed is the one initially thrown

1. Upward

2.Downward

3.Neither—they both hit at the same speed

I know the answer is 3. But I dont know how to prove it. Plz help with it.

Answer #1

from equation ..(1) and ...(2) we can simply conclude that both ball hit ground with same velocity..

plz rate

A
person is standing on top of a 57-m cliff. He throws a ball
straight up right at the very edge of the cliff so that when it
falls it lands at the base of the cliff. The speed of the ball as
it leaves his hand is 22.5 m/s.
A. What is the ball's maximum height?
B. How long is the ball in the air?
C. At what heights (there are two) is the speed of the ball
10.0...

Dennis and Carmen are standing on the edge of a cliff that is h=
10m high. Dennis throws a basketball vertically upward. At the same
time, Carmen throws a basketball vertically downward. Both balls
are thrown with the Vo = 5 m/s. How much time does it take (in
seconds) for each ball to reach the ground?

A person standing on a 20m tall building throws a ball straight
up. The ball is observed to go 5m above the point where she let it
go. It then falls down to the ground.
1. How fast was the ball thrown?
2.How long did it take for the ball to hit the ground?
3. how fast is the ball going just before it hits the
ground?

Suppose that the person throws the ball upward at 14.31 m/s
while standing on the edge of a cliff, so that the ball can fall to
the base of the cliff 46.25-m below . Find a) the time it takes for
the ball to reach its max height, b) The maximum height it will
reach, c) the velocity at point of departure upon its return on its
way to the base of the cliff, d) the round-trip distance, e) the...

Two
identical pellet guns are fired simultaneously from the edge of a
cliff. These guns impart an initial speed of 30 m/s to each pellet.
Gun A is fired straight upward with the pellet eventually hitting
the ground beneath the cliff. Gun b is fired straight downward.
Ignore air resistance. Assume g=10 m/s/s.
A. How long after pellet B hits the ground does pellet A
hit.
B. If the pellet hits the ground with an impact speed of 60
m/s,...

A ball is thrown straight up from the edge of the roof of a
building. A second ball is dropped from the roof a time of 1.17 s
later. You may ignore air resistance
A.
If the height of the building is 20.3 m, what must the initial
speed be of the first ball if both are to hit the ground at the
same time?
Express your answer in meters per second.
B.
Consider the same situation, but now let...

A man throws a ball straight upward with speed 30 m/s from the
top of a building that is 75 m high. Ignore air resistance and
choose the vertical y-axis to be positive downward with
origin at the point of throw (top of the building).
Represent the initial velocity and the acceleration vectors in
the reference y-axis above.
Find the maximum height the ball reaches with respect to the
ground.
How long does it take the ball to reach the...

A 2.0 kg ball is thrown upward with an initial speed of 21.0 m/s
from the edge of a 48.0 m high cliff. At the instant the ball is
thrown, a woman starts running away from the base of the cliff with
a constant speed of 5.80 m/s. The woman runs in a straight line on
level ground. Ignore air resistance on the ball. How far does she
run before she catches the ball? (Your result must be in units...

Two students are on a balcony 18.7 m above the street. One
student throws a ball (ball 1) vertically downward at 14.6 m/s; at
the same instant, the other student throws a ball (ball 2)
vertically upward at the same speed. The second ball just misses
the balcony on the way down. (a) What is the difference in the two
ball's time in the air? s (b) What is the velocity of each ball as
it strikes the ground? ball...

A 2.0 kg ball is thrown upward with an initial speed of 24.0 m/s
from the edge of a 46.0 m high cliff. At the instant the ball is
thrown, a woman starts running away from the base of the cliff with
a constant speed of 5.80 m/s. The woman runs in a straight line on
level ground. Ignore air resistance on the ball. How far does she
run before she catches the ball? (Your result must be in units...
