Review Midterm 1 6 Exercises: Problem Solving Strategy Ball is dropped from rest from the Physics Building ( 44 m ). When does it hit the ground? Note: the gravitational acceleration is ~constant (near Earth’s surface): g = 9.80 m/s 2 , directed downwards Problem-Solving Strategy: 1. make a sketch with axes, axis labels(!), and other details: y -axis vertically up; draw height and path; show the velocity variable … 2. note, on the side, all relevant variables and all data given in the problem: height h = y ( t= 0) = y 0 = 44 m , “from rest” v 0 y =v y ( t= 0) =0 m/s ; g= 9.80 m/s 2 . 3. consider the problem: what is requested; what is going on; what is the physics; can the problem be split in successive parts? Ball is going to accelerate downwards (with constant a y = –g !) , until it hits the ground constant a problem!
