Consider a cart with a ball resting in its middle. When you quickly jerk the cart forward, the front of the cart hits the ball. back of the cart hits the ball. ball remains in the middle as the cart moves forward. above can all occur depending on how quickly the cart is pulled. Explanation: Relative to the ground, the ball tends to remain at rest while the cart moves beneath it. Hence, the back of the cart hits the ball.

A tennis ball and a bowling ball are simultaneously released from rest at the top of your school building. The ball to reach the ground first will be the tennis ball. bowling ball. both will hit at the same time. any of the above, depending on wind conditions. Explanation: Air resistance (not negligible in this case) will act on both when they fall. But the amount of air resistance on the heavy bowling ball will be small compared with the ball's weight. It will therefore better plow through the air and hit first. Answer: B) bowling ball. © 2013 Pearson Education, Inc.

When you jump vertically upward, strictly speaking, you cause Earth to
move downward. also move upward with you. remain stationary. move sideways a bit. Explanation: When you jump upward, you push downward on Earth. Strictly speaking, it therefore moves downward.

The force that propels a rocket is provided by
gravity. its exhaust gases. Newton's laws of motion. the atmosphere against which the rocket pushes. Explanation: Newton's laws are at play in rocket propulsion, but the actual force propelling the rocket is its exhaust gases. As Newton's third law tells us, if the rocket pushes exhaust gases downward, the gases push the rocket upward. Answer: B) its exhaust gases. © 2013 Pearson Education, Inc.
