Section 1. A ball rolls up and back down a
straight incline as shown. In the
following, assume that the xaxis is
along the incline positive to the right. a. On the axes provided, sketch qualitatively correct graphs of
position vs. time, velocity vs. time, and acceleration vs. time for
the motion of the ball up and back down the incline. (Get the
shapes right, but don’t worry about numbers. Be sure to assume
the same time scale for each graph, though.) (6 points) (b)(e) lt’s observed that the ball'begins up the incline with a
speed of 6.0 m/s, and slows down at a constant rate to 2.0 m/s in 8.0 s. (That encompasses only part of the motion up the incline,
of course.) b. What’s the speed of the ball 0.50 s after it begins up the incline? (2 points) ‘v 8.0: I. Exam 1 Turnaround

travel there by train. But you are late ﬁnishing your physics ﬁnal, so you are late in arriving at the train station.
You run as fast as you can, but just as you reach one end of the platform, your train is 30 meters ahead of you
down the platform and traveling at a constant speed of 5.0 m/s. You run at your top speed of 8.0 m/s. You can
run along the platform for 50 meters before you reach a barrier. Will you catch your train? (For full credit your
solution must include qualitatively correct graphs of position vs. time and velocity vs. time, a description of
your plan for solving the problem, and an answer to the question posed in the problem points) . 'ﬁofar you.
