Question

You drop a ball from a window located on an upper floor of a building. It strikes the ground with speed v. You now repeat the drop, but your friend down on the ground throws another ball upward at the same speed v, releasing her ball at the same moment that you drop yours from the window. At some location, the balls pass each other. Is this location (a) at the halfway point between window and ground, (b) above this point, or (c) below this point?

Please explain...

Answer #1

I hope you understood the problem, If yes rate me!! or else comment for a better solution.

A ball is tossed from an upper-story window of a building. The
ball is given an initial velocity of 8.20 m/s at an angle of 15.0°
below the horizontal. It strikes the ground 4.00 s later.
(a) How far horizontally from the base of the building does the
ball strike the ground?
( ) m
(b) Find the height from which the ball was thrown.
( )m
(c) How long does it take the ball to reach a...

Bob drops a ball from rest out the window of a building. At the
very same instant Phyllis releases a ball upward with an initial
speed of 11.0 m/s from a point 20.0 m directly below Bob.
(a) At what height above Phyllis do the balls collide?
(b) Is the ball thrown by Phyllis moving upward or downward when
the collision occurs? Explain

2. A ball is thrown straight upward from the window of a
building 40 meters above the ground with an initial velocity of 20
m/s. Calculate
a. The speed of the ball after 1.5 sec.
b. The time needed for ball to reach its maximum height.
c. The maximum height.
d. The time needed for the ball to return back to the same
window which was thrown
e. The time needed for the ball to reach the ground.
f. Final...

You drop your textbook off the roof of a building, where it
passes identical windows on the second and first floors of the
building. Which window will it pass more quickly, and why? Is the
increase in speed of the book as it drops past the second floor
window the same, less than, or greater than the increase in the
speed of the book as it drops past the first floor window? Why?

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?

Another strange awakening in a room with no windows. This time you
drop a ball from a height of 2.29 m and it hits the floor 0.410 s
after you drop it. This time you suspect you are on a rocket that
has just left the surface of the Earth, and is still not too far
above the ground. What do you deduce the rocket s acceleration to
be?
OK,
this is the last time for one of these crazy...

A ball is thrown upward with speed of 38.0m/s from top of
building 240 m tall: a) How long will it take to reach ground?
b)how long will it take for this ball to reach the highest point.
c) How long after ball is thrown will it be found 265 m above
ground? d) What is velocity of ball as it reaches the ground ? e)
what will be the velocity of this ball at the highest point? f) how...

A ball is dropped from rest from the top of a building with
height 50 meters. At the same instant, you throw a ball upward from
ground level carefully aimed to hit the falling ball. If the
initial speed of your throw is 19 m/s, then the two balls collide
at a height above the ground equal to:
a) 4.50 m b) 7.61 m c) 12.2 m d) 16.1 m e) 2.15 m

From the top of the same building you throw a ball upward with a
speed of of 26.0m/s
b. How much time does it take to hit the ground
c. How fast is it going just before it hits the ground

You are letting 540 g of silly putty fall from rest from your
dorm room window located 35.0 m above ground level. Your friend in
the dorm across the street is observing the situation and throws a
270 g baseball from his window trying to hit your piece of silly
putty. His throw is formidable and hits the silly putty right when
it is halfway to the ground, and when the baseball is moving
horizontally at 15.0 m/s. Baseball and...
