A ball is thrown straight up into the air. At what position is its kinetic energy a maximum? At what position is the gravitational potential energy of the ball–Earth system a maximum?


Expert Answer

Step 1

when a ball thrown upward, its speed will decrease at the rate of gravitational acceleration (Neglect air resistance) and become zero when it reaches at maxium. After that , the ball come down due to gravitational force and hence...
