Physics 211: Lecture 2, Pg 4 1-D Free-Fall 1-D Free-Fall This is a nice example of constant acceleration (gravity): In this case, acceleration is caused by the force of gravity: Usually pick y -axis “upward” Acceleration of gravity is “down” : y a y = - g y 0y v = v - gt 2 y 0 0 t g 2 1 t v y y - + = y a v t t t g a y - =
Physics 211: Lecture 2, Pg 5 Gravity facts: Gravity facts: g does not depend on the nature of the material! Galileo (1564-1642) figured this out without fancy clocks & rulers! On the surface of the earth, gravity acts to give a constant acceleration Nominally, g = 9.81 m/s 2 At the equator g = 9.78 m/s 2 At the North pole g = 9.83 m/s 2 More on gravity in a few lectures!

Physics 211: Lecture 2, Pg 10 Lecture 2, Lecture 2, Act 1 Act 1 1D Free fall 1D Free fall Since the motion up and back down is symmetric, intuition should tell you that v = v 0 We can prove that your intuition is correct: v0 Bill Bill H v = v = v 0 ( 29 0 H H g 2 v v 2 0 2 = - - = - ) ( Equation: Equation: This looks just like Bill threw This looks just like Bill threw the ball down with speed
