If a man leans over a cliff and throws a rock upward at 4.9 m/s. Neglecting air resistance, what is the rock's speed one second later?
Please type your subject in the School Subject box. Any other words, including obscure abbreviations, are likely to delay responses from a teacher who knows that subject well.
v1 = velocity one second later
vi = initial velocity of rock = 4.9 m/s
t = time in seconds
g = acceleration due to gravity = -9.8 m/s^2
v1 = vi + gt
Plug the numbers in and solve for v1.
