w/ Freefall

remember: velocity
time graphs and other

“pictorial illustrations” are your friends)


A hummer slows down uniformly from 21 m/s to rest in 220m. How long does it
take it to stop?


A ball is falling at 20 m/s just be
fore it strikes the floor. It leaves the floor at a
speed of 16 m/s traveling up. Find the ball’s average acceleration if the collision
lasts 0.04 sec.


A boy sledding down a hill accelerates at 1.4m/s/s/. If he started from rest, in what
distance would he

reach 7.0 m/s?


A worker drops a wrench from the top of a tower 80m tall. With what velocity
does the wrench strike the ground?


A physics student throws a cat straight up into the air. The cat is in the air for 4
sec. before it was caught at its original



What was the initial velocity of the cat?


How high did the car rise in the air?


A small first
aid kit is dropped by a rock climber who is descending steadily at
1.9 m/s. After 2.5sec, what is the velocity of the first
air kit, and how far is t
he kit
below the climber?


A small fish is dropped by a pelican that is rising steadily at 0.50 m/s.


After 2.5 sec, what is the velocity of the fish?


How far below the pelican is the fish after 2.5 sec?


An armadillo is thrown upward at 35 m/s. How far wi
ll it travel during the next 2


Ranger Rick in Death Valley National Park is driving at 56 km/hour when a gila
monster jumps onto the road 65m ahead of the car. After a reaction time of t sec,
the ranger applies the brakes to produce an acceleration o
3.0m/s/s. What is the
maximum reaction time allowed if the ranger is to avoid hitting the monster?


1) 20.9m 2) a = 900m/s/s 3) d = 17.5m 4) v = 40m/s 5) a) v=20m/s b) d=20m

6) v = 27m/s d = 31m 7) v = 24.5 m/s 8) d = 50m

9) t = 1.6 sec
