1 PHYSICS 6 Review Problems SPRING 2005 I. Multiple choice -- circle the one best answer. 4a; 5c; 8c __________________________________________________________ 2. A ball is dropped off the roof of a building. It hits the ground in 2 seconds. a) How tall is the building? h = ½ g t 2 = 0.5 x 9.8 (m/s 2 ) x 4 s 2 = 19.6 m b) What is the vertical speed of the ball just before it hits the ground? v = g t = 9.8 (m/s 2 ) x 2 s = 19.6 m/s (this formula is true for constant acceleration = g) A second ball is thrown horizontally from the roof, with a horizontal velocity of 20 m/sec. c) How long does the ball take to reach the ground? 2 seconds (because the horizontal motion is independent of the vertical) d) How far from the building (the horizontal distance) does it land? v(horizontal) t = 20 (m/s) x 2 s = 40 m 3. An Israeli intermediate range missile is launched from a launching tube on the ground and travels to a target in Iraq 1000 Km away in 10 minutes . Assume the missile achieves its burnout velocity by the time it leaves its launching tube (i.e. thereafter there is no further rocket fuel).

    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.
