Problem Details

A hot-air balloonist, rising vertically with a constant velocity of magnitude = 5.00 m/s , releases a sandbag at an instant when the balloon is a height = 40.0 m above the ground The figure shows a balloon rising with a vertical velocity of 5.00 meters per second. A balloonist is holding a sandbag 40.0 meters above the ground.. After it is released, the sandbag is in free fall. For the questions that follow, take the origin of the coordinate system used for measuring displacements to be at the ground, and upward displacements to be positive.
