Homework Assignment 5 – Solutions 18. Choose downward to be the positive y direction. The origin will be at the point where the diver dives from the cliff. In the horizontal direction, 0 1.8m s x v = and 0 x a = . In the vertical direction, 0 0 y v = , 2 9.80 m s y a = , 0 0 y = , and the time of flight is 3.0 s t = . The height of the cliff is found from applying Eq. 2-11b to the vertical motion.

Choose downward to be the positive y direction. The origin is the point where the ball is thrown from the roof of the building. In the vertical direction, 0 0 y v = , 0 0 y = , and 2 9.80 m s y a = . The initial horizontal velocity is 22.2 m/s and the horizontal range is 36.0 m. The time of flight is found from the horizontal motion at constant velocity. 36.0 m 22.2 m s
