Example #1: Bob throws a ball straight up at 20 m/s, releasing the ball 1.5 m above the ground. What's the ball's maximum height? What's its impact speed as it hits the ground? model: treat the ball as a particle visualize: motion diagram pictorial representation y 1 = ? v 1 = 0 m/s y 1 = +1.5 m v 0 = +20 m/s y 2 = 0 m v 2 = ? v a
part 1: maximum height solve adapt equation for use here solve for unknown insert #s and units significant figures assess units? believable? sensible? what happens if initial speed is 0? g = 0? y
