Step 1

(c)Consider the motion of the ball from its release to the time when it caught. It is given that the ball is caught at the same height as the point of release. This implies the net displacement of the ball is zero. The equation of motion is given by help_outlineImage Transcriptionclose1 s ut at 2 Here, s is the displacement, u is the initial velocity,t is the time and a is the acceleration Take the upward direction to be positive. The value of acceleration will be equal to the negative of acceleration due to gravity. Substitute 0 for s and (-g) for a in the above equation 1 0 ut ) 2 1 0 ut 2 1 ut gt 1 (1) gt 2 =_ The value of g is 9.80 m/s2 . Substitute the numerical values in equation (1) 1 (9.80 m/s2 )(2 s) =9.8 m/s fullscreen
