[NEED HELP+DIAGRAM INCLUDED]Question about Air Resistance http://img410.imageshack.us/img410/3732/airr.jpg [Broken] Red line- No air resistance Blue line-Air resistance present Ok, so I thought on the way UP, resistive forces (oppose motion) acts in same way as g-force => Deceleration is very large. Time taken is very short. On the way down, air resistance acts in opposite to g-force, resultant force and acceleration are smaller. Time is much longer. I thought it was B since the a is smaller. (Longer time) But the answer suggested that the first is correct. Reasoning given by answer (Im still confused): Air resistance opposes motion and decreases both vertical and horizontal velocity=>Lower vertical height and shorter horizontal range [OK, I get this] The path of A after maximum height is progressively steeper due to the diminishing magnitude of horizontal velocity. It makes sense also but I wonder why am I wrong? Can anyone help clarify this? Thanks.
