Two basketball players are essentially equal in all respects (they are the same height, they jump with the same initial velocity, etc...). In particular, by jumping they can raise their centers of mass the same vertical distance, H (called their "vertical leap").

The first player, Arabella, wishes to shoot over the second player, Boris, and for this she needs to be as high above Boris as possible. Arabella jumps at time t=0 , and Boris jumps later, at time tR (his reaction time). Assume that Arabella has not yet reached her maximum height when Boris jumps.

1) Find the vertical displacement D(t)= hA(t) - hB(t) , as a function of time for the interval 0<t<tR, where hA(t) is the height of the raised hands of Arabella, while hB(t) is the height of the raised hands of Boris.
Express the vertical displacement in terms of H , g , t.
D(t) = ?

2)Find the vertical displacement D(t) between the raised hands of the two players for the time period after Boris has jumped (t>tR) but before Arabella has landed.
Express your answer in terms of t, tR , g , and H.
D(t)=?

3)What advice would you give Arabella to minimize the chance of her shot being blocked?

Shoot when you have the maximum vertical velocity.

Shoot at the instant Boris leaves the ground.

Shoot when you have the same vertical velocity as Boris.

The verticaldisplacement of a string is given by y(x,t) = (6.00mm) cos[(3.25m to the power of (-1)) x - (7.22 s to the power of (-1))t]. What is the wavelength of the wave?

A block of mass is attached to the end of an ideal spring. Due to the weight of the block, the block remains at rest when the spring is stretched a distance from its equilibrium length. The spring has an unknown spring constant.
A. What is the spring constant?
B. Suppose that the block gets bumped and undergoes a small verti

A 1-dimensional rod 2 meters long of mass 60 grams uniformly distributed has an axle through its midpoint allowing the rod to rotate in a vertical plane. At each end of the rod are identical, ideal springs which have spring constants of 40 N/cm. At equilibrium the rod lies horizontally in the vertical plane. The rod is given

A football is kicked at an angle of 50 degrees and travels a distance of 20 m before hitting the ground.
a. What is the initial speed of the ball?
b. How long is it in flight?
c. How high does it rise?

A pitcher throws a curveball that reaches the catcher in 0.53 s. The ball curves because it is spinning at an average angular velocity of 335 rev/min (assumed constant) on its way to the catcher's mitt. What is the angular displacement of the baseball (in radians) as it travels from the pitcher to the catcher?

The velocity of a car on a straight stretch of highway is recorded every 5 seconds. The data is in the table below. A negative velocity means that the car is traveling east. A positive velocity means it is traveling west. Make a velocity versus times graph, that is, plot velocity on the vertical axis and time on the horizont

At serve a tennis player aims to hit the ball horizontally. What minimum speed is required for the ball to clear the 0.89 m high net about L=14.8 m from the server if the ball is "launched" from a height of H=2.39 m?

If Displacement vector A points due east and has a magnitude of 2.00 km. Displacement vector B points due north and has a magnitude of 3.75 km. Displacement vector C points due west and has a magnitude of 2.50 km. Displacement vector D points due south and has a magnitude of 3.00 km. How can I find the magnitude and direction (
