What do I need to know to be able to sketch the graphs for a ball tossed upward toward a motion detector (mounted from your lab table) as it moves up, reaches its highest point, and falls back down?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 6:07 pm ad1c9bdddf
Note 1. The problem is that of a ball projected upward toward a motion detector.
Note 2. Assume the ball is tossed upward from y=0, having initial velocity +V, rising to maximum height Y and falling back toward y=0.
Note 3. Position vs time.
The y coordinate begins at zero, increases to Y and decreases to zero again.The slope is ...
Assume the ball is tossed upward from y=0, having initial velocity +V, rising to maximum height Y and falling back toward y=0. This solution provides information for graphing position vs time, velocity vs time, and acceleration vs. time.
