+In Maths when you determine the square root of a number you should always give the result as a value. This means there are two answersIn Physics we normally just write out the magnitude of the square root because the negative value is either not relevant or it represents a direction which is already obvious in the problem. In this case a negative time is not plausible.Vertical Projectile MotionExample 1A stone is dropped from an 8.0m tower and falls to the ground.(b) What speed will the stone hit the ground?v = ? u = 0x = 8.0ma = 10ms-2 v2 = u2 + 2axv2 = 2 10 8v2 = 160 v = 12.6491 v 13 ms-1

In this case a negative value means the stone is moving upwards which is not plausible.Vertical Projectile MotionExample 2A stone is dropped down a well and takes 2.5 seconds to hit the water.

The height at which the ball hits John and the height from which the ball was red are the same.Which of the following diagrams (AD) below gives the direction of the force acting on the paintball at points X and Y respectively?

Since air resistance is ignored the only force on the paintball is gravity which is constant and downwards, so the acceleration must be constant and downwards. 2007 Exam Q17Q7Later in the game, Daniel is twice as far away from John (254 m). John res an identical paintball from the same height above the ground as before. The ball hits Daniel at the same height as before. In both cases the paintball reaches the same maximum height (h) above the ground.

Which one or more of the following is the same in both cases?A.ight time B.initial speed C.accelerationD.angle of ring level?

Because the paintball gets to the same vertical height the vertical component in each situation must be the same and hence the flight time will also be the same.Since air resistance is ignored the only force on the paintball is gravity which is constant in both situations and so the acceleration is constant as well.
