Question

A juggler performs in a room whose ceiling is 3 m above the
level of his hands. He throws a ball vertically upward so that it
just reaches the ceiling.

a. With what initial velocity does he throw the ball?

b. What time is required for the ball to reach the
ceiling?

He throws a second ball upward with the same initial velocity,
at the instant that the first ball is at the ceiling.

c. How long after the second ball is thrown do the two balls
pass each other?

d. When the balls pass each other, how far are they above the
juggler’s hands?

Answer #1

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...

Two students are on a balcony a distance h above the street. One
student throws a ball vertically downward at a speed vi ; at the
same time, the other student throws a ball vertically upward at the
same speed. Answer the following symbolically in terms of vi, g, h,
and t. (a) What is the time interval between when the first ball
strikes the ground and the second ball strikes the ground? (b) Find
the velocity of each ball...

A boy 13.0 m above the ground in a tree throws a ball for his
dog, who is standing right below the tree and starts running the
instant the ball is thrown. (a) If the boy throws the ball
horizontally at 7.50 m/s, how fast must the dog run to catch the
ball just as it reaches the ground? (b) How far from the tree will
the dog catch the ball? (c) Find the velocity of the ball
(magnitude and...

A boy 11.0m above the ground in a tree throws a ball for his
dog, who is standing right below the tree and starts running the
instant the ball is thrown. If the boy throws the ball upward at
50.0degrees above the horizontal, at 9.00m/s .
A)How fast must the dog run to catch the ball just as it reaches
the ground?
B)How far from the tree will the dog catch the ball?

A man has two rocks and throws the first one straight up ten
meters high. At the instant the first rock reaches it's highest
point, the man throws the second rock upward with the same in
initial speed as the first. (a) What was the initial velocity of
the first ball? (b) How long will it take the second ball to pass
the first? (c) At what height will the two balls pass one another?
(d) At that time, which...

A ball is thrown vertically upward from a window that is 3.6 m
above the ground. The ball's initial speed is 2.8 m/s and the
acceleration due to gravity is 9.8 m/s^2.
a) What is the ball's speed when it hits the ground?
b) How long after the first ball is thrown should a second ball
be simply dropped from the same window so that both balls hit the
ground at the same time?

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...

At t = 0, Ball 1 is dropped from the top of a 19 mm-high
building. At the same instant Ball 2 is thrown straight up from the
base of the building with an initial velocity of +12 m/sm/s. Assume
that Ball 1 starts from rest and that air friction can be ignored.
At what height will the two balls pass each other?
What is the velocity of each ball at the moment they are at the
same height?
Express...

3. (a) An outfielder fields a baseball 280 ft away from home
plate and throws it directly to the catcher with an initial
velocity of 100 ft/s. Assume that the velocity v(t) of the ball
after t seconds satisfies the di↵erential equation dv dt = 1 10 v
because of air resistance. How long does it take for the ball to
reach home plate? (Ignore any vertical motion of the ball.)
(Instructor’s hint: Recall that a di↵erential equation of the...
