can u pls help .... i dont understad when to take g positive or negetive in ques . on motion under gravity.

Acceleration due to gravity always acts in the downward direction.
Hence, its natural direction is downwards. However, you can consider solving any problem via two variants.
First variant: when object is moving upwards, take g as negative and when it is moving downwards, take g as positive. In this case distance is always taken positive.
Second variant: When we consider upward direction as positive and downward direction as negative, so g will always be negative. In this case distance will be either positive or negative depending on direction of motion of the object.
In either of the variants after calculations the answer is same.

- what do you mean by aircraft wind problem
- two ball of mass 50 g and 100 g bare dropped form same building .what is the ratio of their speeds on reaching ground
- A diwali rocket moves vertically with constant acceleration of 5 ms–2. After some time its fuel exhausted and then it falls freely. If maximum height attained by the rocket is 60m. Then find its speeds when the fuel is just exhausted. (g = 10ms–2)
- a particle starts with velocity 20 m/s with constant retardation of 4m/s^2.find distance travelled in 7 seconds
- please answer the question given below
- obtain equation of motion of constant acceleration using matter calculus
- On turning a corner, a motorist rushing at 44 ms-1 find a child on the road ahead. He is currently stops the engine and applies the brakes so as to stop it within 1m of the child. Calculate time required to stop it stops.
