Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Krista on Thursday, February 2, 2012 at 9:23pm.

In the vertical jump, Kobe Bryant starts from a crouch and jumps upward to reach as high as possible. Even the best athletes spend little more than 1.00 second in the air (their "hang time"). Treat Kobe as a particle and let ymax be his maximum height above the floor.

To explain why he seems to hang in the air, calculate the ratio of the time he is above ymax/2 moving up to the time it takes him to go from the floor to that height. You may ignore air resistance.
