a) What is the speed of the ball at the instant of contact with the floor?

|v| = m/s *

sqrt( 2*9.81*3.6) OK

HELP: This is just a problem in one-dimensional kinematics with constant acceleration. What is the acceleration of the ball while it is in the air?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A flash photograph shows that the ball is compressed a maximum of 0.6 cm when it strikes the floor.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

b) Assuming that the acceleration of the ball is constant during its contact with the floor, what force does the floor exert on the ball?

|f| = N

HELP: Again, this is a problem in one-dimensional kinematics with constant acceleration. What is the acceleration of the ball when it is in contact with the floor?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

c) Over what time does the force act in bringing the ball to rest?

D t = s

Request some guidance as how to proceed with part b and c.

Thanks,
