11.7 Exercises
1 A ball is thrown horizontally from a cliff with a speed of 10msI, at the same time as an identical ball is dropped from the cliff. Neglecting the effect of air resistance and taking gravitational acceleration to be g = +98m~~, sketch graphs (on the axes below) to show
(1) the horizontal speed v, of the projected ball versus time, for the duration of its flighi;
(2) the vertical velocity v,, of the projected and dropped balls vs. time, for the duration of its flight.
On the same axes, sketch graphs to show the horizontal speed and the vertical velocity versus time if air resistance has a significant effect on the flight of the ball. Label each graph clearly to distinguish it from the previous graph.
2 On each of the two projectile trajectories depicted below, draw vectors to show the directions and relative magnitudes of the velocity and the acceleration of the projectile at each of the points A, B & C.
