The magnitudes of the displacements are equal, but the displacements are in opposite directions. Therefore,
one displacement is positive and one displacement is negative.

The displacement is positive because a change of position in the direction of increasing positive position is
positive displacement.

97. ANS:
Free fall is the motion of an object falling with a constant acceleration due to gravity in the absence of air
resistance.
98. ANS:
9.81 m/s
99. ANS:
Since the usual choice of coordinates uses positive as the direction away from Earth, the direction of free-fall
acceleration is negative because the object accelerates toward Earth.

119. ANS:
Mass remains constant, but weight decreases with altitude.
120. ANS:
Mass is the amount of matter in an object and is an inherent property of an object. Weight is not an inherent
property of an object and is the magnitude of the force due to gravity acting on the object.
121. ANS:
Air resistance acts in the direction opposite the direction of an object’s motion.
122. ANS:
In most cases, air resistance increases with increasing speed.
123. ANS:
The acceleration is then zero, and the car moves at a constant velocity.
124. ANS:
Air resistance is a form of friction because it is a retarding force. It acts in the direction opposite an object’s
motion.
