Volume 4: Mechanics 1 Vertical Motion under Gravity

If we drop a stone, it falls towards the Earth. The gravitational force produces an acceleration which at the Earth’s surface is approximately If we model the stone as a particle and ignore air resistance, the only force acting on the stone is Weight is the force due to gravity. acceleration, a = g = 9·8 m s -2 To solve problems involving vertical motion under gravity, we can use the equations of motion for constant acceleration. 9·8 m s -2. its weight.

There are 2 types of problems 1)Object initially thrown up – hence it initially slows down acc = -9.8ms -2. Make UP +ve 2) Object initially thrown down or dropped – hence it speeds up acc = +9.8ms -2 Make DOWN +ve What happens initially is crucial – not whether it comes down later.

e.g.2I throw a ball vertically upwards so that as it leaves my hand it has a velocity of 14·7 m s -1. Modelling the ball as a particle and ignoring air resistance, find (a) the time taken to reach the maximum height, (b) the velocity and displacement after 2 s. Solution: s, u, v, a, t (a) As the ball will travel up and down, we must be careful with signs. Always draw a diagram. u 14·7 a = g = -9·8 m s -2 as initially thrown up. Make UP +ve

SUMMARY For vertical motion where the only force is the weight ( the force due to gravity ) we can use the equations of motion for constant acceleration. The acceleration due to gravity has a magnitude of 9·8 m s -2 close to the surface of the Earth. We draw a sketch of the motion to avoid sign errors. For motion that is all downwards, we usually take the positive axis downwards so g 9·8. Otherwise, the positive axis is up and g 9·8 There is no need to separate the parts of the motion where the body is moving up and down.
