Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Priscilla on Sunday, February 19, 2012 at 9:53pm.

1. While riding on an elevator descending with a constant speed of 1.5 m/s, you accidentally drop a book form under your arm.
(a) How long does it take for the book to reach the elevator floor, 1.2 m below your arm?
(b) What is your book's speed relative to you when it hits the elevator floor?


2. To celebrate a victory, a pitcher throws her glove straight up-ward with an initial speed of 6.0m/s.
(a) How long does it take for the glove to return to the pitcher?
(b) How long does it take for the glove to reach its maximum height?


1a)

v = 3 m/s
h = 1.2 m
t = ?
Vf = ?

V = Vi + at
3 m/s = 0 + (9.8 m/s^2)(t)
t = .30 s


1b) Vf = Vi + at
Vf = 0 + (9.8m/s^2)(.30 s)
Vf = 2.94 m/s


2a & b)
Vi = 6 m/s
t1 = ?
t2 = ?

I'm really confused with this problem since only one quantity is given. But I dont think we can assume that final speed is 0 m/s.
