Problem 28E

If air resistance can be neglected, how does the acceleration of a ball that has been tossed straight upward compare with its acceleration if simply dropped?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 28E If air resistance is neglected, the force acting on the both ball is gravitational force. Hence the acceleration of the ball will be only the acceleration due to gravity. Now we know that the acceleration due to gravity is always a constant and does not depends on the mass and the velocity of the object. So in both cases, whether the ball is tossed up or simply dropped, the velocity is same.
