In this session we investigate the motion of a "Throwing Up" problem. We focus on the motion of an object while it's in the air.

Key take away points:
  • Acceleration is downward on the way up and on the way down
  • Velocity is zero of an instant at the top
  • You can have zero velocity and still be accelerating
