In the vertical jump, an athlete starts from a crouch and jumps upward as high as possible. Even the best athletes spend little more than 1.00 s in the air (their hang time).

To explain why he seems to hang in the air, calculate the ratio of the time he is above ymax>2 to the time it takes him to go from the floor to that height. Ignore air resistance

Lab 2: Kinematics Members: Samantha Rubin, Marguerite Furlong, Zoe Gaber Table Number: 2 Introduction Kinematics explores the relationship between objects and motion, particularly for this lab, an object in free fall. Velocity and acceleration are mathematically represented with their derivatives in respect...
