#### Solution Preview

RESPONSE:
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 ...

#### Solution Summary

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.
