Homework Help: Jumping Lab Question ( Kinematics )

  1. Feb 4, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    a.Standing(Tip Toes) - 0.15m
    b.Crouching(As before you jump) - 0.35m
    c.At the height of a jump - 0.36m
    d.At the bottom of your landing - 0.67

    Mass = 75kg

    1. Find the initial velocity at "take off" ( remember to use magnitude and direction of your acceleration while you are in the air- use c --> d

    2. Find the magnitude and the direction of the average acceleration ( Use b--->c)

    3. Find the magnitude and direction of the average acceleration from when you "Touched down" to when you stopped in the crouch position ( use e---> f)

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I am new to Physics and i asked my teacher for help but he said he would not answer any questions on this lab?

    Can you please help. Maybe explain to me how to do it but I really want to learn.
