Answer to Question #3112 in Electric Circuits for Jennifer
A juggler throws a ball with an initial horizontal velocity of +1.1 m/s and an initial vertical velocity of +5.7 m/s. What is its acceleration at the top of its flight path? Make sure to consider the sign when responding. Consider the upward direction as positive.
Lets write down law of motion. x=V0x t Vx=V0x ax=0 y=V0yt - g t2/2 Vy=V0y-gt ay=-g |a| = √(ax2+ay2) = √(0+(-g)2)=g
