y = v0,2t2 + 1 at2 2 . Solving this equation for v0,2 yields

t2 The time t1 for the first stone to strike the ground can be obtained from Equation 2.8,
y = v0,1t1 + 1

t1 = 2y

acceleration a is that due to gravity, so a = −9.80 m/s .

______________________________________________________________________________ 64. REASONING AND SOLUTION We measure the positions of the balloon and the pellet
relative to the ground and assume up to be positive. The balloon has no acceleration, since it
travels at a constant velocity vB, so its displacement in time t is vBt. Its position above the
ground, therefore, is
yB = H 0 + vBt
where H0 = 12 m. The pellet moves under the influence of gravity (a = –9.80 m/s2), so its
position above the ground is given by Equation 2.8 as yP = v0t + 1 at 2
2
But yP = yB at time t, so that
v0t + 1 at 2 = H 0 + vBt
2 Rearranging this result and suppressing the units gives

t= 23.0 ± 23.02 – 4 ( 4.90 )(12.0 )
2 ( 4.90 ) = 4.09 s or 0.602 s Substituting each of these values in the expression for yB gives yB = 12.0 m + ( 7.0 m/s ) ( 4.09 s ) = 41 m
yB = 12.0 m + ( 7.0 m/s )( 0.602 s ) = 16 m

velocity is constant and it moves in the +x direction, the graph will be a straight line with a
positive slope, beginning at x = −16 m when t = 0 s. At t = 18 s, its position should be
x = −16 m + 48 m = +32 m. Once the graph is constructed, the object’s velocity is found by

is the average velocity. The algebraic sign of the average velocity, therefore, corresponds to
the sign of the slope. Chapter 2 Problems 83 SOLUTION
a. The slope, and hence the average velocity, is positive for segments A and C, negative for
segment B, and zero for segment D.

vC = 69. REASONING The slope of the positiontime graph is the velocity of the bus. Each of the
three segments of the graph is a straight line, so the bus has a different constant velocity for
each part of the trip: vA, vB, and vC . The slope of each segment may be calculated from
∆x Equation 2.2 v = , where ∆x is the difference between the final and initial positions of
∆t the bus and ∆t is the elapsed time during each segment. The average acceleration of the bus
v − v0 is the change in its velocity divided by the elapsed time, as in Equation 2.4 a =
