You throw a 134 g ball straight up to a height of 43.0 m.
(a) Assume that the displacement of your hand is 0.70 m as you throw the ball straight up. How long is the ball is in your hand?
(b) Calculate the average force exerted by your hand while you are throwing it.

  • physics -

    (a) release velocity = sqrt(2gH) = 29.0 m/s
    Time in hand = 0.70 m/(Avg. Velocity) = 0.70/(29.0/2) = 0.048 s

    (b) Force * Distance = Work = Potential Energy Gain at max. height

    F*0.70 = M*g*H = 0.134*9.8*43 J
    Solve for F in Newtons
