A hotair balloonist, rising
vertically with a constant velocity
of magnitude 5.0 m/s, releases a
sandbag at an instant when the
balloon is 40.0 m above the ground.
After it is released, the sandbag is in
free fall.
(a) Compute the position and velocity of the sandbag at 0.250
s and 1.0 s after its release.
(b) How many seconds after its release will
the bag strike the ground?
(c) With what magnitude of velocity does it
strike the ground?
(d) What is the greatest height above the ground
that the sandbag reaches?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1At the instant the sand bag is dropped, its velocity will be 5 m/s upwards. Do you want to attempt it on your own first?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Since, I have to go to, i'll leave you some hints. To find the velocity at given times, you can use the equation v=u+gt Here, u will be 5m/s. To find the positions at given time you can use s = ut + 1/2gt^2 Don't forget to use the sign convention.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1At greatest height velocity will become 0, you can use this fact to find the greatest height that the sand bag reaches.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0t at 0.250 Y=(5m/s)(.250s)1/2(9.8)(.250s) = 0.94375 m @Abhisar am I on the right track?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0t at .250 Vf = 5m/s  (9.8)(.250) Vf = 2.55 t at 1 Vf = 4.8 m/s

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0b.) is quite confusing hmmm doI have to use 2 equations???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Your first answer is correct, let's see what time does the sand bag takes to reach the maximum height. At max height V=0, putting this value in the equation v=u+at we get that t= 0.5. So in 1 sec the bag will return to its initial position i.e. 40m from the ground. Getting it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Exact position at 0.25 seconds will be 40+0.94 m from ground.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Using 1st law of motion, V=U+gt, Since, at the maximum height velocity of the bag will become 0, V=0. Also u=5m/s => 0=510t (taking g=10m/s^2) =>t=0.5 sec

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1For the part b you have to calculate time in 2 steps as following: Step 1: since initially bag will move upward for some time (0.5 sec) and then come back to its initial position (40 m from ground) again taking time equal to its time of ascend (0.5s). So total time taken in the cycle (going up and then coming down) will be 0.5+0.5 = 1s. Step 2: Now we need to find how much time the bag will take to reach the ground from 40 m above it. We can use s=ut+at^2. (u will again be 5m/s but in downward direction this time) Total time taken will be the sum of time calculated in step 1 and step 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you mean to say 40=(5)(t)+1/2(9.8)(t)^2 ???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Total time will be \(\approx 3.38~s\)
