Previously we determined the motion graphs for dropping a ball from 2.0 meters and throwing a ball up to 2.0 meters and catching it again. In this video I show that the reverse of the drop coupled with the drop itself is the same thing as throwing the ball upward. Make sense? Okay, watch the video.

This lesson builds on what we learned about position as a function of time graphs. We start with velocity as a function of time graphs, determine what the motion would look like and then draw position and acceleration as a function of time graphs.
