You throw a ball of mass kilograms into the air with an upward velocity of m/s. Find exactly the time the ball will remain in the air, assuming that gravity is given by
You drop a ball with a mass of kilograms out an airplane window at a height of m. How long does it take for the ball to reach the ground?
You drop the same ball of mass kilograms out of the same airplane window at the same height, except this time you assume a drag force proportional to the ball’s velocity, using a proportionality constant of and the ball reaches terminal velocity. Solve for the distance fallen as a function of time. How long does it take the ball to reach the ground?
