Problem 21DQ

An object is thrown straight up into the air and feels no air resistance. How can the object have an acceleration when it has stopped moving at its highest point?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 21DQ Step 1 : In this question, an object is tossed up straight in the air, here we need to explain how can this body have acceleration when it has reached its highest point Step 2 : Let us understand that when an object is tossed up in the air, it will have velocity given by the throw, and the object gains acceleration to reach it highest point At the highest point reached by the object the velocity of the object becomes zero, and the object will start moving in the opposite direction , that is towards the ground due to gravitational force acting upon the object
