Clicker problem n Raindrops fall 2 km from a cloud to the ground. If they were not slowed by air resistance, how fast would the drops be moving when they struck the ground? Take g=10m/s 2 . n A: 70 km/hr n B: 140 km/hr n C: 500 km/hr n D: 720 km/hr n E: 900 km/hr

Clicker problem n Raindrops fall 2 km from a cloud to the ground. If they were not slowed by air resistance, how fast would the drops be moving when they struck the ground? Take g=10m/s 2 . n Use v 2 =v 0 2 +2 × 10 × 2000 m 2 /s 2 . n Set v 0 =0. n So |v|=200 m/s = 200 × 3600 s / 1000 m × km/hr = 720 km/hr n Having drops fall on your head at this speed would be quite dangerous! n Large raindrops hit terminal speeds of about 40 km/hr in the air.

Strategy n Precise answers usually require algebraic solutions n Write out equations and solve for unknown n However, more vaguely worded problems may best be solved graphically (See next few problems). n Increase, Bigger, smaller, faster, shorter rather than how big, how fast, how small

Clicker question n How does the vertical distance between them change? n A: increases n B: decreases n C: stays the same n How does the difference in their velocities change? n A: increases n B: decreases n C: stays the same n A skydiver jumps out of a hovering helicopter. A few seconds later, another skydiver jumps out, so they both fall along the same vertical line relative to the helicopter. Both sky divers fall with the same acceleration. Assume that g is constant.
