GP A beach ball is thrown straight up, and some time later it lands on the sand. Is the magnitude of the net force on the ball greatest when it is going up or when it is on the way down? Or is it the same in both cases? Explain. Air resistance should not be neglected for a large, light object.
Step 1 of 3 Any mass object thrown from earth surface after some time again it falls on the earth surface due gravitational full of earth and always which acts downwards. During the journey of the object one more force resist motion of the object and which acts on the body which is called drag force or air resistance Step 2 of 3 Net resultant force is not same when ball is moved in upward and downward Gravitational force and drag forces(air resistance) acts in same direction when the ball moves upward. Gravitational force and drag forces(air resistance) acts in opposite direction when the ball moves downward. But the resultant force is greater in the upward motion than the downward direction
