Question

Calculate the displacement and velocity at times of (a) 0.500, (b) 1.00, (c) 1.50, and (d) 2.00 s for a ball thrown straight up with an initial velocity of 15.0 m/s. Take the point of release to be $y_o = 0$.

a) $x_a = 6.28 \textrm{ m}$, $v_a = 10.1 \textrm{ m/s}$

b) $x_b = 10.1 \textrm{ m}$, $v_b = 5.20 \textrm{ m/s}$

c) $x_c = 11.5 \textrm{ m}$, $v_c = 0.300 \textrm{ m/s}$

d) $x_d = 10.4 \textrm{ m}$, $v_d = -4.60 \textrm{ m/s}$
