Unit 4: Momentum and Collisions

Problem Set A

 

Problem 10:

A 1.9 kg object is thrown upward with an initial speed of 9 m/s. The ball is caught when it has a downward speed of 9 m/s. How long (in seconds) was the ball in the air? (Hint: use the weight of the ball as the force and use 9.8 m/s/s for acceleration due to gravity.) 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Momentum and collision principles can be reviewed on the Set A Overview page.
