Question

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 ground?

Answer #1

A ball is thrown horizontally from the top of a 57.5-m building
and lands 122.3 m from the base of the building. Ignore air
resistance. (Assume the ball is thrown in the +x direction
and upward to be in the +y direction.)
(a)
How long (in s) is the ball in the air?
(b)
What must have been the initial horizontal component of the
velocity (in m/s)? (Indicate the direction with the sign of your
answer.)
(c)
What is the...

rock thrown upward with an initial speed of 24.5 m/s
from the top of a 50m tower.
a. what's the rockets velocity the instant it hits the
ground?
b. how long is it in the air?
c. what's the max height above the building the ball
reaches?

A blue ball is thrown upward with an initial speed of 21.2 m/s,
from a height of 0.5 meters above the ground. 2.6 seconds after the
blue ball is thrown, a red ball is thrown down with an initial
speed of 11.7 m/s from a height of 25.7 meters above the ground.
The force of gravity due to the earth results in the balls each
having a constant downward acceleration of 9.81
m/s2.
A) What is the speed of the...

A ball with mass m kg is thrown upward with initial velocity 16
m/s from the roof of a building 28 m high. Neglect air resistance.
Use 9.8 m/s2. Round your answers to one decimal place. (a) Find the
maximum height above the ground that the ball reaches. meters (b)
Assuming that the ball misses the building on the way down, find
the time that it hits the ground.

I throw a ball straight upward at an initial velocity of +40
m/s. Assuming g is -10 m/s2, (a) how long would it take for the
ball to reach its maximum height before falling back down? (b) what
will its final speed be right before reaching your hand again at
the same height as where you threw it? (c) how does the
acceleration of the ball change as it reaches the top of its path
going 0 m/s?

Nicholas throws a ball with an initial speed of 10.00 m/s at
an angle of 58° above the horizontal. The ball leaves her hand 0.88
m above the ground and experience negligible air resistance.
(a)How far from where the child is standing does the ball hit
the ground?
(b)How long is the ball in flight before it hits the
ground?
(c)What is the magnitude of the ball's velocity just before
it hits the ground?
(d)At what angle below the horizontal...

A 0.240 g pebble is fired at a speed of 14.6 m/s from the top of
a 20.0 m tall building. Ignoring air resistance, find the kinetic
energy with which the pebble strikes the ground when the pebble is
fired vertically straight up.
A ball which is thrown straight up takes 3.50 s to reach the
maximum height. Determine the gravitational potential energy of the
ball (m = 0.145 kg) when it reaches the maximum height.

A ball is thrown horizontally from the top of a 68 m building
and lands 110 m from the base of the building. Ignore air
resistance.
a. What is the vertical component of the velocity just before
the ball hits the ground?
c. What is the angle of the ball just before it hits the ground
( in degrees below x-axsis)?

A ball with mass 1/9.8 kg is thrown upward with initial velocity
20 m/s from the roof of a building 30 m high. Assume that the force
of air resistance (drag force) is (v^2)/1225. Find the maximum
height above the ground that the ball reaches. (Hint: ﬁnd the
velocity v(t) ﬁrst, then ﬁnd the height x(t).)

You throw a ball vertically upward with an initial velocity of
10 m/s from a window located 20 m above the ground. Knowing that
the acceleration of the ball is constant and equal to 9.81 m/s^2
downward (this makes for negative acceleration as upward motion is
positive and downward motion is negative and gravity pulls
downward), determine:
(a) The acceleration at t = 2 s
(b) The equation for velocity (Because you are looking for an
equation for velocity, you...
