Two students are on a balcony 18.3 m above the street. One student throws a ball (ball 1) vertically downward at 12.2 m/s; at the same instant, the other student throws a ball (ball 2) vertically upward at the same speed. The second ball just misses the balcony on the way down...

**Physics Check**

A ball is rolling across the top of a billiard table and slowly rolls to a stop. How would Galileo explain the motion of the ball as it stopped? a)The ball's natural state is at rest =b)The ball stopped because it ceased to be pushed c)The ball stopped due to external forces ...

A 5-kg ball is at rest when it is struck head-on by a 2-kg ball moving along a track at 10 m/s. If the 2-kg ball is at rest after the collision, what is the speed of the 5-kg ball after the collision?

A ball is thrown directly upward from ground level with an initial velocity v(0) = 96 ft=s. Assuming that the ball’s only acceleration is that due to gravity (i.e., a(t) = ��32 ft=s2), determine the maximum height reached by the ball and the time it takes to ...

**Physics**

A ball of radius 0.300 m rolls along a horizontal table top with a constant linear speed of 3.30 m/s. The ball rolls off the edge and falls a vertical distance of 2.50 m before hitting the floor. What is the angular displacement of the ball while it is in the air? (All ...

Each croquet ball in a set has a mass of 0.45 kg. The green ball, traveling at 12.6 m/s, strikes the blue ball, which is at rest. Assuming that the balls slide on a friction- less surface and all collisions are head-on, find the final speed of the blue ball in each of the ...

**Physics. LAST PROBLEM!!**

A small metal ball with a mass of m = 82.5 g is attached to a string of length l = 1.72 m. It is held at an angle of θ = 58.5° with respect to the vertical. The ball is then released. When the rope is vertical, the ball collides head-on and perfectly elastically with an ...

A soccer player stops a ball that is moving across a field. Her foot is in contact with the ball for 0.3 s, during which time the ball's average acceleration is 12 m/s2. What was the ball's initial velocity?

**Physics please help cant figure this out**

starting with an initial speed of 5.00 m/s at a height of 0.265 m, a 1.75 kg ball swings downward and strikes a 4.45 kg ball that is at rest, as the drawing shows. (a) Using the principle of conservation of mechanical energy, find the speed of the 1.75 kg ball just before ...
