After falling from rest at a height of 29.2 m, a 0.488 kg ball rebounds upward, reaching a height of 20.3 m. If the contact between ball and ground lasted 1.68 ms, what average force was exerted on the ball? I'm so confused on where to start. tyvm

A ball is dropped from the same height, but 20 feet away from the side of the building. The height y of the ball at time t is given by y(t) = 64 − 16t2. How fast is the shadow of the ball moving along the ground after 1 second?

A small, m = 2.00 g plastic ball is suspended by a L = 25.0 cm long string in a uniform electric field, as shown in the figure below. If the ball is in equilibrium when the string makes a 14.0° angle with the vertical as indicated, what is the net charge on the ball?
