In the previous lesson we dropped a ball from 2.0 meters above the ground and now we throw one up to a height of 2.0 meters. We do this in order to understand the similarities between the two events. Oh, and of course we draw some graphs. This is an Introductory Free-Fall Acceleration Problem
0:18 Reviewing the previous lesson
0:34 Reading the new problem
1:26 Acceleration vs. time
1:59 Velocity vs. time
2:49 Position vs. time
4:16 The Velocity at the top is ZERO!
5:50 Comparing throwing the ball to dropping the ball
6:56 Finding the total change in time
7:44 Finding the velocity initial
