Tennis balls are tested by measuring their bounce when dropped from a height of approximately 2.5 m. What is the final speed of a ball dropped from this height? Example Problem v i =0 v = a Δ t Δ x= ½ a ( Δ t) 2 v 2 = 2 a Δ x A. v = 1 m/sec B. v = 3 m/sec C. v = 7 m/sec D. v = 14 m/sec

Throwing stones (up) What happens when it starts coming down again? v(3) v(1) v(0) . v(4) =0. It reaches its highest point when it stops going up and then begins to fall with a=-g. It re-traces its path and velocity but down a is always downward it is g
