Question

# At the maximum height of a body thrown vertically up:

A
Velocity is not zero but acceleration is zero.
B
Acceleration is not zero but velocity is zero.
C
Both acceleration and velocity are zero.
D
Both acceleration and velocity are not zero.

Solution

## The correct option is B Acceleration is not zero but velocity is zero.At the maximum height reached, the body comes to rest and thus its velocity becomes zero while the acceleration due to gravity $$(g = 9.8 \ m/s^2)$$ acting on it continues to act in downward direction and tries to bring the body back to the ground.Thus at maximum height, the acceleration of the body is non-zero but its velocity is zero.Physics
