Homework Help: Physics

Posted by John on Thursday, May 12, 2011 at 10:02pm.

I've tried a bunch, have no idea. Got the first part, no idea on the second one.

A basketball, of mass m = 0.45 kg is dropped, from rest, from a stationary hellicopter at a high altitude. Use g = 9.81 N/kg.

(a) If air resistance is negligible, using energy considerations alone, how fast should the ball be going after it falls 100 meters? 1 m/s

(b) Of couse, we cannot ignore air resistance (i.e. drag). As a result, after the ball has fallen far enough, it reaches its terminal velocity, vt = g/d, where d is the drag coefficient of the ball in air. If d = 0.007, how much energy has the ball lost due to air resistance after it falls 1300 meters?
