1. A yellow ceramic ball is dropped (from rest) from a height of 1.5 meters and hits a landing pad. Analyze this situation. Start by deciding what models apply and why, then draw many diagrams to represent the situation, then solve for as many unknowns as you can.

2.

An aluminum ball is dropped (from rest) from a height of 1.5 meters and hits a landing pad.

3.

A ping-pong ball is dropped (from rest) from a height of 1.5 meters and hits a landing pad.

4.

A yellow ceramic ball moving at 3 m/s rolls off of a horizontal table, falls 1.5 meters, and hits a landing pad.

5.

A yellow ceramic ball is launched from the edge of a 1.5 meter table. The initial velocity of the ball is 3 m/s at 20.

Rank the above situations from greatest to least based on the time for the sphere to hit the ground. Make your ranking in one single line, using only the > and = signs. Ties are possible.

Explain the reasons behind your ranking. Try to give a brief explanation that covers all the cases rather than explain each case individually.

Rank the situations from greatest to least based on the horizontal distance of the sphere from the edge of the table at the time it hits the oor. Make your ranking in one single line, using only the > and = signs. Ties are possible.

6. Jack be nimble, Jack be quick, Jack jumped over the candlestick with a velocity of 5 m/s at an angle of 30 to the horizontal. Did Jack burn his feet on the 0.25-m high candle?

7.

King Arthurs knights re a cannon from the top of the castle wall. The cannonball is red at a speed of 50 m/s and at an angle of 30. A cannonball that was accidentally dropped hits the moat below in 1.5 seconds. How far from the castle wall does the red cannonball hit the ground?

8.

A grey kangaroo can leap a distance of 10 meters on horizontal ground. What is the minimum takeoff speed for such a leap?

9.

Len is running to school and leaping over puddles as he goes. From the edge of a 1.5-m long puddle, Len jumps 0.2 m high off the ground with a horizontal velocity component of 3 m/s in an attempt to clear it. Determine whether or not Len sits in school all day with wet socks on.

10. In 1780, in what is now referred to as Bradys Leap, Captain Sam Brady of the U.S. Continental Army escaped certain death from his enemies by running over the edge of the cliff above Ohios Cuyahoga River, which is conned at that spot to a gorge. He landed safely on the far side of the river. It was reported that he leapt 22 ft across while falling 20 ft.
