### Question 1

Question
A ball is rolling down one hill and up another. Points A and B are at the same height. How do the velocity and acceleration change as the ball rolls from point A to point B?
• The velocity and acceleration are the same at both points.
• The velocity and the magnitude of the acceleration are the same at both points, but the direction of the acceleration is opposite at B to the direction it had at A.
• The acceleration and the magnitude of the velocity is the same at both points, but the direction of the velocity is opposite at B to the direction it had at A.
• The horizontal component of the velocity is the same at points A and B, but the vertical component of the velocity has the same magnitude, but the opposite sign at B. The acceleration at points A and B are the same.
• The vertical component of the velocity is the same at points A and B, but the horizontal component of the velocity has the same magnitude, but the opposite sign at B. The acceleration at points A and B has the same magnitude, but opposite direction.

### Question 2

Question
In two-dimensional motion in the x-y plane, assuming any constant acceleration, what is the relationship between the x part of the motion to the y part of the motion?

• The x part of the motion is linearly dependent on the y part of the motion.

• If the y part of the motion is in the vertical direction, then x part of the motion is dependent on the y part.

### Question 3

Question

• A and B reach the ground at the same time, but B has a greater velocity in the vertical direction.
