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 first. 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 first. 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. . Figure 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

Rob and Dave run a 100 m race. (a) See Graph. Figure 3: Rob and Dave run a race. (b) a rob = 5 . 6 m/s 2 and a dave = 3 . 9 m/s 2 (c) v ron = 11 . 1 m/s and v dave = 11 . 8 m/s 2 (d) At 6 seconds, Rob is ahead by 2 . 4 m . 4. A model rocket is fred vertically. (a) See graph. Figure 4: A rocket launches into the air. (b) The highest point o± the rocket is 101 m . (c) The rocket spends 13 sec in the air. (d) The velocity o± the rocket when it lands is 44 . 5 m/s . 5.

### 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.
