## Homework Statement

A baseball is thrown straight up. The drag force is proportional to v^{2}.

In terms of g, what is the y-component of the ball's acceleration when its speed is half its terminal speed and it is moving up? In terms of g, what is the y-component of the ball's acceleration when its speed is half its terminal speed and it is moving back down?
