Vectors, Scalars, & Displacement Practice Problems
A basketball player releases a ball without initial speed. The ball rebounds on the ground. Make a visual representation of the situation, showing the velocity and acceleration during the short time when the ball comes into contact with the ground.
Make a visual representation of the situation described below.
A car initially at rest moves with constant acceleration along a straight line on a horizontal surface from x = 250 m to x = 1200 m. At x = 1200 m, the speed of the car is 25 m/s.
The velocity of a shred traveling in the y direction follows Vy = 3t2 m/s, and the time is in seconds. At time t0 = 0 s, the starting position of the shred is y0 = 2 m. Calculate the position of the particle at t = 1 s.
