Unformatted text preview: 47 (a) At the highest point the velocity of the ball is instantaneously zero. Take the y axis to be 2 2 upward, set v = 0 in v 2 = v0 - 2gy, and solve for v0 : v0 = 2gy. Substitute g = 9.8 m/s and y = 50 m to get v0 = 2(9.8 m/s )(50 m) = 31 m/s . 2 (b) It will be in the air until y = 0 again. Solve y = v0 t - 1 gt2 for t. Since y = 0 the two 2 solutions are t = 0 and t = 2v0 /g. Reject the first and accept the second: t= (c) y 60 (m) 40 20 0 ...... ............ ...... ........ ..... ... ... ... ... ... ... .. ... .. .. .. .. .. . .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. . .. .. .. . .. .. . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 2v0 2(31 m/s) = 6.4 s . = 2 g 9.8 m/s v 40 ... ... ... ... ... ...
