Why you ask you dident give us all the numbers therefore there are infinite numbers of posibilitys to use 3 resolve...

If it traveled an infinite distance it would never return. Herp derp.

OOOORRR, the answer is UNDEFINED. Not infinite.

exacly...
Nuff said

6. You guys have no freaking idea.

t = 12 seconds
t1 = 6 seconds

Speed:

V = gt
g = gravitational speed
V = 9,81 m/s^2 x 6s (x means multiply)
V = 58,56 m/s

Maximum height:

h = ?
h = Vt/2
h = 58,56 x 6 (x means multiply)
h = 351,36 meters.

7. @The Philosopher you're a fucking moron. You're using the free fall equation to get the speed of the boomerang which makes no sense since first: you asked for the speed at which it was thrown, second: you would need to differentiate to get the instantaneous rate (the moment the boomerang left the thrower's hand) for which you haven't given enough information.

Well it's how we did it at school so idk wdf you're on about..
Could you do your version so I can see what you mean?

You need to know calculus. v=gt is the equation for the velocity of something by acceleration due to gravity which is used in a hypothetical zero friction free fall situation. v=gt tells you nothing of the rate at which the boomerang left the thrower's hand since the speed at which the boomerang travels is far from linear on its entire path.

11. fuck physics, do it yourself.

12. Then again your class won't take into account drag and all that stuff unless you're in college, its a perfectly fine example to introduce a student to physics, but its absolutely unrealistic of what goes on. This problem assumes that the rate change is parabolic because of the fact that there is no drag. Not only would the deacceleration be greater than 9.8m/s^2, the rate at which the boomerang was thrown might be greater than the terminal velocity in freefall which would change everything up. This example would have to be done in one gigantic ass vacuum to get those results.

13. what the fuck, v=gt?

Pretty sure I've never seen that equation in class.

...

14. Ques. # 1 = 1 m/s
Ques. # 2 = 12m

Hmm pretty sure this is a simple question in high school :\
But not sure though
