2.43: a) Using the method of Example 2.8, the time the ring is in the air is ) s m 80 . 9 ( ) m 0 . 12 ( ) s m 80 . 9 ( 2 s) m 00 . 5 ( s) m 00 . 5 ( ) ( 2 2 2 2 0 2 0 0 - - + = - - + = g y y g v v t y y s, 156 . 2 = keeping an extra significant figure. The average velocity is then s m 57 . 5 s 2.156 m 0 . 12 = , down. As an alternative to using the quadratic formula, the speed of the ring when it hits the ground may be obtained from ) ( 2 0 2 0 2 y y g v v y y - - = , and the average velocity found from 2 0 y y v v + ; this is algebraically identical to the result obtained by the quadratic formula.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
