A boy fires a 60 g pebble with his slingshot. The pebble leaves the slingshot at 35m/s

How high above the slingshot will the pebble rise if it's fired straight up?

  • physics - ,

    KE =PE
    m•v²/2 =m•g•h
    h = v²/2•g =(35)²/2•9.8 =62.5 m

  • physics - ,

    V2 2 = V1 2 + 2aΔd
    0 = 35 2 + 2(-9.8)d
    0 = 1225 – 19.6d
    -1225 = -19.6d
    62.5 = d

    The pebble will reach a maximum height of 62.5m [up].
