v i v f = ? h The law of conservation of energy can help us calculate the speed of the ball when it reaches the ground, but it cannot tell us the path that the ball follows in getting there.

The basic rule that relates force to motion is Newton’s 2 nd Law : a m F net = dt v d a = where Note that if the net force is zero, the acceleration of the object is zero – the object moves at constant velocity.
net F represents the vector sum of all the forces acting on the object . .. ... 3 2 1 + + + = F F F F net So, in order to determine the net force, we must identify all the contact and long-range forces acting on the object.
