1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A ball with a mass of 200 g is thrown vertically upwards with an initial velocity of 16.0 m/s. It is allowed to fall back to its original position. Ignore air resistance. Calculate the force acting on the ball during its upward movement. 2. Relevant equations w=mg 3. The attempt at a solution It's a really basic question, but I can't wrap my head around how or what it means by calculating force. The only thing I've been able to think of given the data I have is weight force, but i'm not sure if that's what the question is asking me to do? w=m*g w=0.200*9.8 w=1.96N I'm so sorry for the dumb question!
