Worksheet 2: One-dimensional kinematics Questions 1. Yes, it is possible for an object to have zero velocity and be accelerating at the same time. 2. Yes, it is possible to increase speed while decreasing acceleration. 3. Ball C will reach the bottom Frst. The reason being is that ball C will accelerate more at the beginning, and hence will have a greater average velocity than ball A. Since both tracks are the same length, ball C will reach the bottom Frst. Problems 1. A diver jumps into the pool with initial upward velocity 2 m/s at a height of 5 m . Once she lands, her deceleration is 30 m/s . (a) See graph. . ±igure 1: Diver jumps into a pool. x = 0 denotes the boundary between air and water (b) The highest point the diver is above the pool is 5 . 6 m (c) The velocity of the diver hitting the water is - 10 m/s 1
