Motion Under Gravity
In this chapter, we shall examine one-dimensional motion under gravity. By their very nature, the problems are restricted to those involving moving under the influence of the Earth’s gravity, with or without resistance. Nevertheless, falling raindrops, parachutists, balls and so on, and bullets, missiles and balls fired through the air comprise a very important class of problems. We consider first vertical motion. Because of their limited scope, we can solve virtually all such problems by examining just five types. First, there is motion without resistance. There are then upwards and downwards motions, each under the action of two types of resistance.
