You stick your arm over the edge of the Grand Canyon, and throw a ball vertically upwards with a velocity of 15 m/s. Compared to the heighht that you throw the ball, what height is the ball after 6 seconds?

  • Physics -

    t(up) = (Vf - Vo) / g,
    t(up) = (0 - 15) / -9.8 = 1.53s. to reach max. ht.

    hmax = (Vf^2 - Vo^2) / 2g,
    hmax = (0 - (15)^2) / -19.6 = 11.5m.
    above launching point.

    h = Vo*t + 0.5g*t^2,
    h = 15*6 - 4.9*6^2 = -86.4m = The distance below max. ht.

    Free-fall distance=-86.4 - 11.5 = -98m
