Can an object have a positive acceleration, while maintaining a constant velocity? Explain your answer.
Write and explain each of Newtonâ€™s three laws of motion. Make sure you clearly illustrate the meaning of each law. Give an example of these laws observed in the comic book universe. Whatever comic book hero or event you choose is fine.
There is a force due to gravity on a 50 kg boulder that falls from a high cliff 2 km from the ground below.
1) Calculate the time it takes the bolder to fall from the top of the cliff to the ground if it starts from rest.
2) What is its speed when it hits the ground?
3) What is the average velocity of the rock over the course of its entire trip from the cliff top to the ground?
