These lessons, with videos, examples and step-by-step solutions, are suitable for A Level Maths learning about kinematics of motion.

Vertical Motion under Gravity
Mechanics 1 - M1 - Kinematics of a Particle, SUVAT

Example:
A stone is thrown upwards from horizontal ground with speed of 14.7 m/s. Assuming that there is no air resistance and taking g = 9.8 ms-2. Find
a) The time taken to reach the ground again (i.e. time of flight)
b) The maximum height reached.

Vertical motion under gravity - ball thrown upwards from a balcony
SUVAT equations

Example:
A ball is thrown upwards from a balcony with a speed of 3 m/s, 8 m above the ground. Find the time taken for the ball to hit the ground and the speed at which it hits the ground. Take g = 9.8 ms-2.
