## Main Question or Discussion Point

Two questions:

1.) When you throw a ball up and it reaches the height of its trajectory, is the velocity equal to zero only for an INSTANT or for LESS THAN A SECOND BUT MORE THAN AN INSTANT? The velocity graph is sloping straight downwards with no breaks.

2.) If you are given a x(t) graph that shows a simple parabolic motion (throw ball up and comes down) and a v(t) graph that is a straight line sloping downwards (starting above the x axis and ending below the x axis), how would you calculate the acceleration (ball is thrown on another planet)?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
