2 Section 3 Vertical Motion

3 Gravity Signs are always how you start e.g. if you start throwing upwards, then up is + Acceleration is g and always down. Sign depends on if you say up is + or down is +. Watch for displacement e.g. throwing something off a cliff 30 m above ground, hence displacement is -30

4 Example 3.1 [LC:1988 Q1 (b)] A particle falls freely from rest from a point o, passing three points a, b and c, the distances ab and bc being equal. If the particle takes 3 s to pass from a to b and 2 s from b to c, calculate |ab|

5 Always go from A as initial velocity remains same
+ A u=u x A to C A to B B 2x u=u, a=g, s=x, t=3 u=u, a=g, s=2x, t=5 C Down is positive hence g is positive here Solve to give x =147 m

6 Example 3.2 [LC:2002 Q1(a)] A stone is thrown vertically upwards under gravity with a speed of u m/s from a point 30 m above the horizontal ground. The stone hits the ground 5 s later. Find the value of u Find the speed with which it hits the ground.

7 Displacement is -30 because up is positive
u=+u a=-g s=-30 t=5 + -30 Finding v Finding u

8 Example 3.3 [LC:1990 Q1(a)] A particle is projected vertically upwards with velocity u m/s and is at a height h after t1 and t2 seconds respectively. Prove that:

9 u=+u a=-g s=+h t=t (t1 on way up, t2 on way down) h Solving + Product of 2 roots Remember α and β

10 Example 3.4 [LC:1992 Q1(a)] A balloon ascends vertically at uniform speed. 7.2 seconds after it leaves the ground, a particle is let fall from the balloon. The particle takes 9 seconds to reach the ground. Calculate the height from which the particle was dropped.

11 Balloon + u h For the Particle u= +u a= -9.8 t= 9 s= -h

12 Example 3.5 [LC:2007 Q1(a)]

13 Equations always give zero to n time
3rd second is between t=2 seconds and t=3 seconds Equations always give zero to n time Let x = distance travelled in first 3 seconds Let y = distance travelled in first 2 seconds From the Question

14 Finding Height of the tower
