(b) and let gives (c) At the maximum height, Let gives gives Reflect: The acceleration is downward, throughout the motion. The velocity initially is upward, decreases to zero because of the downward acceleration and then is downward and increasing in magnitude because of the downward acceleration. 2.55. Set Up: Take to be upward and Solve: (a) with at the maximum height gives so (b) Consider the time to the maximum height on the earth. The total travel time is twice this. First solve for with and gives Then gives The total time is Then, on the moon with and gives The total time is 18.4 s. It takes 15.3 s longer on the moon. Reflect: The maximum height is proportional to so the height on the moon is greater. Since the acceleration is the rate of change of the speed, the wrench loses speed at a slower rate on the moon and it takes more time for its speed to reach at the maximum height. In fact, which agrees with our calcu- lated times. But to find the difference in the times we had to solve for the actual times, not just their ratios.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
