this question on a piece of paper and hand it in
What is the instantaneous velocity of
a freely falling object 10 s after it is
released from a position of rest?
v = at          v = ??
a = 9.8 m/s2
t = 10 s
v = (9.8 m/s2)(10 s) = 98 m/s
How far will it fall during this
time?
d = do + vot + ½at2     d = ??
do = 0      vo = 0
a = 9.8 m/s2
t = 10 s
So, d = ½(9.8 m/s2)(10 s)2 = 490 m
What is the average velocity
during this 10-s interval?
vavg = (vf – vo)/2
vo = 0 m/s
vf = 98 m/s
vavg = (98 m/s – 0 m/s)/2 = 49 m/s
What is the acceleration of a vehicle
that changes its velocity from 0 m/s
to 50 m/s in 10 s?
a = (vf – vo)/Dt
vo = 0 m/s
vf = 50 m/s
Dt = 10 s
a = (50 m/s – 0 m/s)/(10 s) = 5 m/s2
Surprisingly, very few athletes can jump
more than 2 feet (0.6m) straight up.
What is the “hang time” for this jump?
d = ½at2 gives the time to fall
d = 2 ft
a = 32 ft/s2

2d    2(2ft)
t            2
 0.35 s
a   32ft/s
Total time in the air = 0.7 s
An airplane is flying at 350 mph SW while in the
jet stream, which is blowing at 100 mph from
west to east. What is the speed and direction of
the plane with respect to the ground?

100 mph W

30°
60°

50 N

50 N
Free Body Diagrams
A football is moving upwards towards
its peak after having been booted by
the punter. A free-body diagram for
this situation looks like this:
A skydiver is descending with a
constant velocity. Consider air
resistance. A free-body diagram for
this situation looks like this:
A car is coasting to the right and
slowing down. A free-body diagram
for this situation looks like this:
