I've been long out of practice with physics and the idea just seemed nonsensical to me, but not nearly as much now. (view)
Tue 12 Feb, 2013 08:13 pm - Hmm. I believe you're correct there - the acceleration of a thrown object at maximum height, although its instantaneous velocity equals zero, is still the downward acceleration of gravity.... (view)
Tue 12 Feb, 2013 07:54 pm - I can hardly claim any knowledge of physics either, hah.
I did poke around online, and found this: "Acceleration is nothing but the rate of change of velocity. Now consider a car that is at... (view)
Tue 12 Feb, 2013 06:55 pm - I don't think so - the question is from the point of view of an (I assume) stationary observer who is observing an object that is actually accelerating. If that's what you meant; please... (view)
Tue 12 Feb, 2013 05:13 pm - This seems like a dumb question, I know, and it really might be. I'm working through some physics problems, and one states: "An object is accelerating in a northern direction. In that... (view)
