Suppose at one instant of time the velocity of a body

is zero. Can this body have a non{zero acceleration at


this instant? Give an example.

Is the average speed equal to the magnitude of the


average velocity? Is the average speed equal to the
average magnitude of the velocity?

If an astronaut in her spacesuit can jump to a height of


20 cm on earth, how high can she jump on the moon?
The acceleration due to gravity on the moon is 1/6 the
value on earth.

A woman riding upward in an elevator drops a penny


in the elevator shaft as she passes the third oor. At

make any di erence?
