Determine:
• velocity and elevation above ground at
time t,
• highest elevation reached by ball and
corresponding time, and
• time when ball will hit the ground and
corresponding velocity.
Ball tossed with 10 m/s vertical velocity
from window 20 m above ground.

• Solve for t at which velocity equals
zero (time for maximum elevation)
and evaluate corresponding altitude.

Sample Problem 11.3
Brake mechanism used to reduce gun
recoil consists of piston attached to barrel
moving in fixed cylinder filled with oil.
As barrel recoils with initial velocity v
0
,
piston moves and oil is forced through
orifices in piston, causing piston and
cylinder to decelerate at rate proportional
to their velocity.
Determine v(t), x(t), and v(x).
kv a − =
SOLUTION:
• Integrate a = dv/dt = -kv to find v(t).
• Integrate v(t) = dx/dt to find x(t).
• Integrate a = v dv/dx = -kv to find
v(x).
