Practice Problems: Uniformly Accelerated Motion
(g = 9.8 m/s2 or 32 ft/s2)
1.
If an athlete jumped 2 feet high and left the ground at an angle of 20 degrees with respect to the horizontal, how fast
was the athlete going in the forward

PROBLEM SET 1
Instructions: Read each question carefully. On a separate sheet of paper, complete each
problem and label your final answer clearly. Make sure that you show all of your work for full
credit.
1. A new trail leads
1.
Two speed skaters (S1 and S2) enter the final curve (point A) with exactly the same velocity (say, 20
m/s). At this instant they are tied. Throughout the first half of the curve (points A-C), it appears that
the athlete in the outside lane (S2) remains
