Unformatted text preview: a ball straight up into the air. In addition to gravity, the ball feels a force due to air resistance. Compared to the time it takes the ball to go up, the time it takes to come back down is: 1) smaller 2) the same 3) greater Due to air friction, the ball is continuously losing mechanical energy. Therefore it has less KE (and energy consequently a lower speed) on the way down. This speed means it will take more time on the way down !! Follow-up: How does the force of air resistance compare to gravity when the ball reaches terminal velocity? ConcepTest 8.11a Time for Work I Mike applied 10 N of force over 3 m in 10 seconds. Joe applied the same force over the same distance in 1 minute. Who did more work? 1) Mike 2) Joe 3) both did the same work ConcepTest 8.11a Time for Work I Mike applied 10 N of force over 3 m in 10 seconds. Joe applied the same force over the same distance in 1 minute. Who did more work? 1) Mike 2) Joe 3) both did the same work Both exerted the same force over the same displacement. Therefore, both did the same di...
