1 QUESTION 1 A ball is thrown horizontally from a cliff with a speed of 10 ms -1 shown in the diagram at right. Neglecting the effect of air resistance and taking gravitational acceleration to be g +9.8ms -2, Sketch graphs (on the axes below) to show: (1) the horizontal speed v x of the ball versus time, for the duration of its flight; (2) the vertical velocity v y of the ball versus time, for the duration of its flight. (4 marks) On the same axes, sketch graphs to show the horizontal speed and the vertical velocity versus time if air resistance has a significant effect on the flight of the ball. Label each graph clearly to distinguish it from the previous graph.

Each is affected by the same acceleration due to gravity (g). (1 mark) Given the formula: $, if these variables are the same for both balls, the balls will fall with the same period and therefore hit the ground at the same time (3) Explain how we can use the diagram to deduce that the velocity of ball A increases during its fall.

If this distance is (1 mark) increasing, so too is the magnitude of the vertical velocity
