Unformatted text preview: Problem of the Week  ­ #1 The figure below shows the trajectory of a ball traveling through the air, affected by both gravity and air resistance. Here are the positions of the ball at several successive times: Location A B C t(s) 0.0 1.0 2.0 Position (m) <0, 0, 0> <22.3, 26.1, 0> <40.1, 38.1, 0> a. What is the average velocity of the ball as it travels between location A and location B? b. If the ball continued to travel at the same average velocity during the next second, where would it be at t = 2 seconds? c. How does your prediction from part (b) compare to the actual position of the ball at location C? If these are different, explain why. ...
