David Kim Physics Period 9 9/21/10 HW #4 Pg. 74 # 42-44 42. A construction worker accidentally drops a brick from a high scaffold. a. What is the velocity of the brick after 4.0 s? b. How far does the brick fall during this time? a. V f = V i +at V f = 0.00 m/s + (-9.80 m/s 2 )(4.0 s) V f = -39.2 m/s b. d f = d i + v i t + ½at 2 d f = 0.00 m + (0.00 m/s)(4.0 s) + ½(-9.80 m/s 2 )(4.0 s) 2 d f = -19.6 m 43. Suppose for the previous problem you choose your coordinate system so that the opposite direction is positive? a. V
