Maria throws an apple vertically upward from a height of 1.2 m with an initial velocity of +2.7 m/s.
Will the apple reach a friend in a tree house 4.8 m above the ground?

  • physics -

    vi^2=2g*height solve for max height.

  • physics -

    v = vi - 9.8 t
    v = 0 at max height
    so
    t = 2.7/9.8 time to top = .276
    h = 1.2 + 2.7 t -4.9 t^2
    =1.57

    4.8 - 1.57 = 3.22 below the house

  • physics -

    how long will it be in the air before it hits the ground?

  • physics -

    Vf^2 = Vo^2 + 2gd = 0,
    (2.7)^2 + 2(-9.8)d = 0,
    7.29 - 19.6d = 0,
    -19.6d = - 7.29,
    d = -7.29 / -19.6 = 0.372 m. upward.

    d(tot.) = 1.2 + 0.372 = 1.57 m.

    4.8 - 1.57 = 3.228 m below the house.
