1.Two runners accelerate from rest with the acceleration of runner A twice that of runner B. After accelerating for a given time, the speed of runner A will be twice that of runner B.

is this right or wrong?

2.An ball is thrown vertically upward. At the top of its flight, both the ball's velocity and acceleration are zero.

Is this right or wrong?

3.An object is thrown downward with a speed of 10 m/s from a bridge. Accelerating under gravity (9.8 m/s2), the object strikes the water 1.8 s later. From what height above the water was the object thrown? (Assume 2 significant digits.)

what is the right answer?

4.A stone is thrown downward from a window. Accelerating under gravity (9.8 m/s2), the stone hits the ground 2.6 s later with a speed of 20.0 m/s. From what height above the ground was it thrown?

what is the right answer?

5.An 80.4-km trip takes a time of 0.75 h to complete. The average speed, expressed in the correct manner, is?

6.An rockis thrown vertically upward at 25.0 m/s. If it experiences an acceleration due to gravity of 9.8 m/s2 [down], what is the rock's velocity 3.0 s later?

2. Relevant equations

v2=v1+a(change in time)

v=d/t

(delta D)= v1(change in time) +1/2a (change in time)squared

there are some more that i probably dont know

3. The attempt at a solution

1. i got that number 1 is wrong

2.i got that number 2 is right

3. i got 27m

4,5,6 i had no clue
