Question

A 1-kg ball is released from a height of 6 m, and a 2-kg ball is released from a height of 3 m. Air resistance is negligible as they fall. Which of the following statements about these balls are correct? (There could be more than one correct choice.)

Both balls will reach the ground with the same speed. |
||

As they reach the ground, the 1-kg ball will have more kinetic energy than the 2-kg ball because it was dropped from a greater height. |
||

Both balls will reach the ground with the same kinetic energy. |
||

As they reach the ground, the 1-kg ball will be moving faster than the 2-kg ball. |
||

Both balls will take the same time to reach the ground. |

Answer #1

*Answer:**Third and fourth options
are correct.*

**Both balls will reach the ground with the same kinetic energy.****As they reach the ground, the 1-kg ball will be moving faster than the 2-kg ball.**

**Explanation:**

A 1-kg ball (m_{1}) is released from a height of 6 m
(h_{1}) , and a 2-kg ball (m_{2}) is released from
a height of 3 m (h_{2}).

Air resistance is negligible as they fall.

So,

And,

Kinetic energy for ball of 1 kg,

Kinetic energy for ball of 2 kg,

Consider a 1 kg ball and a 6 kg ball of the same size dropped
from a height of 3 m at the same time above the ground.
a) If we consider air resistance, do both objects fall or
accelerate at the same rate? Explain.
b) If we dropped a 1 kg ball and a 1 kg square plate of
dimension 20 cm x 20 cm, do both objects fall or accelerate at the
same rate? Explain.

A heavy rock and a light rock are dropped from the same height
and experience no significant air resistance as they fall. Which of
the following statements about these rocks are correct? (There
could be more than one correct choice.)
-The heavier rock reaches the ground before the lighter
rock.
-Both rocks have the same kinetic energy when they reach the
ground.
-When they reach the ground, the heavier rock has more kinetic
energy than the lighter rock.
-Both rocks...

A stone 0.44 kg mass is released from rest from a height of 29.4
m above the ground. Ignoring air resistance and letting the ground
be the zero potential energy level,
Determine the final kinetic energy of the stone using energy
conservation principle only, not as a free fall.
Determine the work done on the stone by gravity.

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 rubber ball of mass 0.175 kg is released from rest from a
height of 1.25 m. It rebounds from the floor to reach a height of
0.630 m. What impulse was applied to the ball by the floor? (You
may safely ignore air resistance. Enter the magnitude in kg ยท
m/s)

A 4.1-kg ball is thrown from the top of a 4-m tall building
(point A) with a speed of 1 m/s at an angle 2 degrees above the
horizontal. If air resistance is negligible, what is the value of
the kinetic energy of the ball as it hits the ground?

A ball of mass 0.4 kg is lifted up to a height of 10 m. what is
the ball's potential energy at this point? if the ball is dropped
from the rest at this height, what is the ball's speed just before
it hits the ground. if the force of air resistance is 0.1 N, what
is the ball's speed just before it hits the ground?

A
ball of mass 5.93 kg is released from rest at height 7.62 m above
the floor. It falls, hits the ground, and rebounds to height 3.2 m
above the floor. Assume none of the losses are due to air friction.
Find the work done against friction, in J, on the ball during the
contact with the ground

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
ball of mass 2.25 kg is released from rest at height 5.29 m above
the floor. It falls, hits the ground, and rebounds to height 3.19 m
above the floor. Assume none of the losses are due to air friction.
Find the impulse, in N-s, exerted by the floor on the ball. The
sign of your answer will give the direction of the impulse.
