Numerically, we have, with m = (5.29 N)/(9.80 m/s 2 )=0.54 kg, 2 2 (20.0 m/s) 19.4 m/s 2(9.80 m/s )(1 0.265/5.29) h == + . (b) We notice that the force of the air is downward on the trip up and upward on the trip down, since it is opposite to the direction of motion. Over the entire trip the increase in thermal energy is Δ E th = 2 fh . The final kinetic energy is Km v f = 1 2 2 , where v is the speed of the stone just before it hits the ground. The final potential energy is U f = 0. Thus, using Eq. 8-31 (with W = 0), we find 1 2 2 1 2 2 0 2 mv fh mv += . We substitute the expression found for h to obtain 2 22 0 0 2 11 2( 1 / ) 2 2 fv mv mv gf w =− + which leads to 2 2 2 00 0 0 2 1 (1 / ) / ) fv fv f wf vv v v v mg f w w f w w f w f §· = = ¨¸ ++ + + ©¹ where w was substituted for mg and some algebraic manipulations were carried out. Therefore, 0 5.29 N 0.265 N (20.0 m/s) 19.0 m/s 5.29 N 0.265 N
