A ball thrown by Ginger is moving upward through the air. Which force diagram represents the forces on the ball? You may neglect the effects of air resistance.
a) only down force
b) only up force
c) both forces
d) both forces (but down is larger/longer).

I am unsure if it is a) or d). The fact that it is moving upward through the air is throwing me off. Does the fact that it's moving "upwards" create a normal force? Or is gravity just affecting the ball at this point?
Please help? Thanks

  1. two forces down: gravity, and air friction. Many will ignore air friction, so go with a)
