Reflect: The answers can be checked several ways. For example, and in gives which agrees with the height calculated in (a). 2.52. Set Up: Take to be downward. and let Solve: (a) gives (b) 2.53. Set Up: Take upward. The initial velocity of the sandbag equals the velocity of the balloon, so When the balloon reaches the ground, At its maximum height the sandbag has Solve: (a) The sandbag is 40.9 m above the ground. The sandbag is 40.1 m above the ground. (b) gives and t must be positive, so (c) (d) gives The maximum height is 41.3 m above the ground. (e) The graphs of and y versus t are given in Figure 2.53. Take at the ground. Figure 2.53 2.54. Set Up: Take to be downward. The acceleration is the slope of the versus t graph. Solve: (a) Since is downward, it is positive and equal to the speed The versus t graph has slope a y 5 30.0 m / s 2.0 s 5 15 m / s 2 . v v . v y v y 1 y a y v y y t t O t O O y 50 v y , a y , y 2 y0 5 v y 2 2 v0 y 2 2 a y 50 2 1 5.00 m / s 2 2 2 1 2 9.80 m / s 2 2 5 1.28 m.
