a dog jumps onto a toy at a 45° angle. At the top of the dog's motion is the speed zero? and is the acceleration zero?

Homework Answers

Answer #1

Ans : Speed = 0 , Acceleration g = 9.8 m/s² , in downward direction.

Explanation:

The dog jumps with an initial velocity and and as it moves upward it's velocity decreases and at highest point of it's trajectory , i.e. when it reaches the maximum hight , the velocity will be zero and then it will fall from highest point and speed increases. So at the top of the dog's motion , the speed is zero.

Now at the top , the speed is zero.i.e the dog stops for a moment and at that point , there will the acceleration due to gravity which will act on the dog in downward direction. But horizontal acceleration is zero.

So , at the top of the dog's motion , acceleration will not be zero but it will be g = 9.8 m/s².

A top is a toy that is made to spin on its pointed end by pulling on a string wrapped around the body of the top. The string has a length of 66 cm and is wound around the top at a spot where its radius is 1.4 cm. The thickness of the string is negligible. The top is initially at rest. Someone pulls the free end of the string, thereby unwinding it and giving the top an angular acceleration...
