At t = US, a ball is thrown vergcally upward from ground level with an initial speed
v0. The ball reaches a maximum height d and returns to ground level. Which graph
correctly describes the position of the ball as a function of time for the chosen
reference frame? C Answer 4) Regarding the previous question: Which graph correctly describes the veiocity of the
ball as a function of time for the chosen reference frame? 5) Consider the following position vs. time graph for two Speed boats undergoing motion
in one dimension. Which scenario could be represented by this graph? A) Boats A and B pass each other at constant speeds while traveling in opposite
directions; B) Boat A accelerates past boat B. They are traveling in the same direction; C) Boat B accelerates past boat A. They are traveling in opposite directions; D) Boats A and B pass each other at constant speeds while traveling in the same

:: 10) For an object in uniform circular motion, which of the following is TRUE? A) The velocity is constant and the magnitude of the acceleration is constant;
B) The velocity is changing and the magnitude of the acceleration is constant;
C) The velocity is constant and the magnitude of the acceleration is changing;
D) The velocity is cchanging and the magnitude of the acceleration is changing. Answer B— Problem 1 Cars A and B travel towards each other at constant speeds of 20 mis and 40 mfs respectively, along a
straight and level road. At 3.0 s after the instant shown in the figure, they spot each other and immediately apply their brakes. The brakes decelerate each car at a rate of 2.5 mfsz. Use the
