Chapter 2 Homework

For each of the motions described below, determine the algebraic sign (+, , or 0) of the velocity and acceleration of

the object at the time specified. For all of the motions, the positive y axis is upward.

Part A

An elevator is moving downward when someone presses the emergency stop button. The elevator comes to rest a

short time later. Give the signs for the velocity and the acceleration of the elevator after the button has been pressed

but before the elevator has stopped.

Enter the correct sign for the elevator's velocity and the correct sign for the elevator's acceleration,

separated by a comma. For example, if you think that the velocity is positive and the acceleration is

negative, then you would enter +,-. If you think that both are zero, then you would enter 0,0.

The algebraic sign of velocity is determined solely by comparing the direction in which the object is moving

with the direction that is defined to be positive. In this example, upward is defined to be positive. Therefore,

any object moving upward, whether speeding up, slowing down, or traveling at constant speed, has positive

velocity.

The algebraic sign of acceleration is more difficult to determine than the algebraic sign of velocity. The

acceleration of an object points in the same direction as the change in the velocity of an object. If an object

is speeding up, the change in the velocity points in the same direction as the velocity:

If an object is slowing down, the change in velocity points in the opposite direction to that of the velocity:

Chapter 2 Homework

Once you know the direction of the acceleration, you can determine its sign by comparing it to the defined

positive direction, in this case, upward.

ANSWER:

-,+

Correct

Part B

A child throws a baseball directly upward. What are the signs of the velocity and acceleration of the ball

immediately after the ball leaves the child's hand?

Enter the correct sign for the baseball's velocity and the correct sign for the baseball's acceleration,

separated by a comma. For example, if you think that the velocity is positive and the acceleration is

negative, then you would enter +,-. If you think that both are zero, then you would enter 0,0.

The algebraic sign of velocity is determined solely by comparing the direction in which the object is moving

with the direction that is defined to be positive. In this example, upward is defined to be positive. Therefore,

Chapter 2 Homework

If an object is slowing down, the change in velocity points in the opposite direction to that of the velocity:

Once you know the direction of the acceleration, you can determine its sign by comparing it to the defined

positive direction, in this case, upward.

ANSWER:

+,-

Correct

Part C

A child throws a baseball directly upward. What are the signs of the velocity and acceleration of the ball at the very

top of the ball's motion (i.e., the point of maximum height)?

Enter the correct sign for the baseball's velocity and the correct sign for the baseball's acceleration,

separated by a comma. For example, if you think that the velocity is positive and the acceleration is

negative, then you would enter +,-. If you think that both are zero, then you would enter 0,0.

Problem 2.96

In the vertical jump, an athlete starts from a crouch and jumps upward to reach as high as possible. Even the best

athletes spend little more than 1.00 s in the air (their "hang time"). Treat the athlete as a particle and let y max be his

maximum height above the floor.

To explain why he seems to hang in the air, calculate the ratio of the time he is above y max /2 (moving up from

y max /2

to y max and then moving down to y max /2 ) to the time it takes him to go from the floor to that height. You
