Asked Sep 28, 2019

suppose you throw a ball vertically downward with a speed of 10 m/s. neglecting air friction what would be the speed of the ball one second later



Expert Answer

Step 1


Initial velocity of the ball = 10 m/s (Downward)

Step 2

Calculating the velocity of the bal...

Initial velocity of the ball, u = 10 m/s Acceleration of the ball, a = g = 9.8 m/s2 Calculating the velocity of ball after t 1 s, using first eq. of motion, v=uat Substitute u= 10 m/s, a g, t=1s v 10m/s(9.8m/s'(ls) v 19.8m s
