    Note 1. With the floor at the origin of a y axis, the initial y coordinate is Yo= 2.30 m, the initial upward (positive) velocity is Vo= 7.27 m/s, and the downward (negative) acceleration during the entire free fall flight, from release to impact is g= -9.8 m/s^2.

    Note 2. For the upward portion of the flight, the velocity of the ball at the highest ...
