Lecture 12 Purdue University, Physics 149 3 You and a friend are standing on level ground, each holding identical baseballs. At exactly the same time, and from the same height, you drop your baseball without throwing it while your friend throws her baseball horizontally as hard as she can. Which ball hits the ground first? A) Your ball B) Your friends ball C) They both hit the ground at the same time ILQ 1 When ball hits depends on y only! y(t) = y 0 + v yo + ½ a y t Same for both balls! v 0y = 0 and y = 0 therefore t=sqrt(2y 0 /g) result is independent of v 0x

Lecture 12 Purdue University, Physics 149 4 ILQ 2 Fred throws a ball 30 mph vertically upward and then catches it again at the same height he threw it from. What is the speed of the ball when he catches it? (Neglect air resistance) A) v < 30 mph B) v = 30 mph C) v > 30 mph v y 2 = v y0 2 - 2g(y-y 0 ) v y 2 = v y0 2
