Question

You stand 17.5 m from a wall holding a tennis ball. You throw the tennis ball at the wall at an angle of 40.5∘ from the ground with an initial speed of 26.5 m/s. At what height above its initial position does the tennis ball hit the wall? Ignore any effects of air resistance.

Answer #1

acceleration due to gravity is acting vertically downward. horizontally no acceleration.

**the answer is
h=11.24m**

You throw a tennis ball from a bridge with an initial speed of
14 m/s , at an angle of 14 degrees above the horizontal. You then
throw a baseball from that bridge with an initial speed of 14 m/s ,
at an angle of 17 degrees above the horizontal. Neglecting air
resistance, which of the following statements is true?
The tennis ball and the baseball are both in the air for the
same amount of time.
The tennis ball...

A physics student stands on a cliff overlooking a lake and
decides to throw a tennis ball to her friends in the water below.
She throws the tennis ball with a velocity of 22.5 m/s22.5 m/s at
an angle of 40.5∘40.5∘ above the horizontal. When the tennis ball
leaves her hand, it is 11.5 m11.5 m above the water. How far does
the tennis ball travel horizontally before it hits the water?
Neglect any effects of air resistance when calculating...

You throw a ball toward a wall at speed 25 m/s and at angle θ0 =
400 above the horizontal. The wall is a distance d = 22 m from the
release point. (a) How far above the release point does the ball
hit the wall? (8 points) (b) When it hits the wall, has it passed
the highest point on its trajectory? Explain. (7 points) (c) At
what angle must the ball be thrown to maximize the height that...

A home run is hit in such a way that the baseball just clears a
wall 14 m high, located 132 m from home plate. The ball is hit at
an angle of 37° to the horizontal, and air resistance is
negligible. (Assume that the ball is hit at a height of 1.0 m above
the ground.)Find(a) the initial speed of the ball (b) the time it
takes to reach the wall and (c) the velocity components and the
speed...

A baseball pitcher releases the ball at a height of 1.9 m above
the ground at a horizontal distance of 18.5 m from home plate. The
initial angle is 0.50° above the horizontal. In order to throw a
strike, the ball must cross home plate between 55 and 120 cm above
the ground. For what range of initial speeds will the pitch be in
the strike zone? Ignore the effects of air resistance.

A baseball player hits a home run, and the baseball just clear a
wall 27 m located 144 m from the home plate. The ball is hit at an
angle of 38 degrees to the horizontal, and air resistance is
negligible. Assume the ball is hit at a height of 1.0 m above the
ground. What is the initial speed of the ball? (use g = 10
m/s2).
How much time does it take for the ball to reach the...

Question:
You stand at the bottom of a long ramp (i.e. one used for
wheelchair access) and throw a tennis ball towards the top of the
ramp, as shown in the sketch. Assume that the tennis ball leaves
your hands a height h = 1.800 m from the ground and at a
speed of v0 = 14.00 m/s and an angle of
elevation of 51.03°, as shown in the sketch. Take the origin of a
Cartesian coordinate system on the...

You throw a tennis ball North with an initial speed of 24 feet
per second, at an angle of elevation 30° above horizontal,
releasing the ball 4 feet above the ground. A steady wind imparts a
constant acceleration of 3 feet per second squared Eastward.
Acceleration due to gravity is a constant 32 feet per second
squared downward.
Throughout the problem, let East be the positive x
direction, North the positive y direction, and up the
positive z direction. Let...

You throw a ball torwards a wall at speed 17 m/s and at an angle
40.0° above the horizontal. The wall is 22.0 m from the release
point of the ball.
(a) How long does the ball take to reach the wall?
(b) How far above the release point does the ball hit the
wall?
(c) What are the horizontal and
vertical components of its velocity as it hits the
wall?
(d) When it hits, has it passed the highest...

A home run is hit in such a way that the baseball just clears a
wall 20 m high, located 128 m from home plate. The ball is hit at
an angle of 33° to the horizontal, and air resistance is
negligible. (Assume that the ball is hit at a height of 1.0 m above
the ground.)
(a) Find the initial speed of the ball.
m/s
(b) Find the time it takes the ball to reach the wall.
