## Why does a ball thrown upward in a train moving with uniform velocity returns to the thrower?

Due to inertia of motion, as long as the ball stays in air, both the person and the ball move in the same direction which cause the ball to fall back to the thrower’s hand.

## When you throw a ball vertically upward in a train moving with uniform velocity then where will be the ball fall?

The ball will return to its thrower. The horizontal component of velocity of the ball is equal to the velocity of the train. And the vertical component of velocity of the ball is equal to the initial velocity with which the ball is thrown upwards.

## Why a ball thrown vertically upward?

When the body is thrown upwards, it moves up until the velocity of the ball becomes zero and the force exerted on it becomes zero. After that the ball reaches the ground with the acceleration due to gravity with the zero velocity. When the ball goes up, the height of the ball increases and it also moves up.

## What happens when a ball is thrown upwards?

When a ball is thrown in an upward direction, its velocity decreases continuously but its potential energy goes on increasing. As the ball reaches to a maximum height, the kinetic energy gradually gets converted into potential energy of the ball.

## When a ball is thrown upward what is its velocity?

Therefore, velocity at the top is zero and acceleration is acceleration due to gravity (g). Was this answer helpful?

## Why is the speed of the ball thrown upward decreases as it moves upward?

For example, when a ball is thrown up in the air, the ball’s velocity is initially upward. Since gravity pulls the object toward the earth with a constant acceleration , the magnitude of velocity decreases as the ball approaches maximum height.

## What happens if we throw a ball upwards to a certain height in an accelerating train?

The ball thrown upwards possesses the inertia of motion of the train. Hence at that moment when the train changes its velocity the ball continues to travel with the previous velocity of the train which is definitely less than the new velocity (because it is given that the train accelerates).

## When a ball is thrown vertically upwards from the ground at what point during its flight is its acceleration zero?

The velocity at the top of the balls motion upward is zero. The acceleration is always 9.8m/second^2 downward due to gravity. When a body is thrown vertically upward, its velocity is zero at maximum height, but its acceleration is not zero.

## When you throw a ball directly upward what is true about its velocity?

When you throw a ball up in the air, its direction/velocity on the way up, although it rises up into the air, is actually downward. On its way up, its speed decreases, until it momentarily stops at the very top of the ball s motion. Its acceleration is -9.8 m/s^2 at the very top.

## What is a ball thrown vertically upward an example of?

The ball moves along a straight line while going upwards. Hence, its motion can be classified as linear motion.

## Why does a ball thrown upwards fall vertically downwards?

When a ball is thrown upwards, it falls to the ground because of gravitational force. Gravitational force is a pull that is exerted by the earth on all objects on it.

## What is the formula for vertical throw?

The vertical displacement of a ball thrown into the air can be calculated using the equation d = v o t + 1 2 a t 2 , where is the displacement (in meters), is the initial velocity, is the acceleration due to gravity, and is time measured in seconds.

## When a passenger in a uniformly moving train throw a ball upward the ball will return?

Both during its upward and downward motion, the ball continues to move inertia of motion with the same horizontal velocity as the train. In this period, the ball covers the same horizontal distance as the train and so it comes back to the thrower’s hand.

## Why does a ball thrown upward return to the ground after reaching a certain height?

Gravitational force of the earth acts on every object having mass. When an object is thrown upwards the gravitational force of the earth acts against the velocity of the object and pulls the object downwards, i.e, towards itself. thus the object returns back towards the earth. Was this answer helpful?

## What is a ball thrown upwards and it returns to the ground describing?

which of the following remains constant? Horizontal component of velocity.

## Why does the ball we throw in upward direction come back in downward direction?

Whenever we throw any object in upward direction, the gravitational pull acts on the body which is in downward direction. Hence it falls back to the ground under the action of Earth’s gravity.
