|A ball is launched up a ramp by a spring as shown in the figure at the right. At the time when the clock starts, the ball is near the bottom of the ramp and rolling up the ramp as shown. It goes to the top and then rolls back down.
For the graphs shown below, the horizontal axis represents the time. The vertical axis is unspecified.
|(a) The x component of the ball's position.||_______|
|(b) The y-component of the ball's velocity||_______|
|(c) The x-component of the ball's acceleration||_______|
|(d) The y-component of the normal force the ramp exerts on the ball||_______|
|(e) The x-component of the ball's velocity||_______|
|(f) The x-component of the force of gravity acting on the ball||_______|
