Question

A quarterback shows a football with an initial speed of 20m/s at
an angle of 40**°** above the horizontal. Neglecting
the height of release and assuming no air friction, answer the two
questions below:

When the ball is at its maximum height, the horizontal and vertical components of the velocity vector are:

A) Vx = 0m/s, Vy = 0m/s

B) Vx = 0m/s, Vy = 18.4 m/s

C) Vx = 15.3 m/s, Vy =0m/s

When the ball is at its maximum height, the horizontal and vertical components of the acceleration vector are:

A) Ax = +9.8m/s^2, Ay = 0m/s^2

B) Ax = -9.8m/s^2, Ay = +9.8m/s^2

C) Ax = 0m/s^2 Ay = - 9.8 m/s^2

A rock is launched off a cliff at a speed of 12.1 m/s at an
angle of 35.0 degrees above the horizontal. The height of the cliff
is 16.1 m. How far horizontally from the edge of the cliff does the
rock land (to one decimal place)?
In your solution, also sketch the x-t, y-t, vx-t,
vy-t, ax-t, and ay-t diagrams.

A quarterback is set up to throw the football to a receiver who
is running with a constant velocity ~vr directly away from the
quarterback and is now a distance D away from the quarterback. The
quarterback estimates that the ball must be thrown at an angle θ to
the horizontal and the receiver must catch the ball a time interval
tc after it is thrown. Assume the ball is thrown and caught at the
same height y = 0...

On a level football field a football is projected from ground
level. It has speed 8.0 m/s when it is at its maximum height. It
travels a horizontal distance of 70.0 m. Neglect air
resistance. How long is the ball in the air?

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 football is kicked with a speed of 20 m/s at an angle of 37
degrees to the ground.
● (a) What is the maximum height that it reaches?
● (b) How far has it travelled horizontally when it reaches its
maximum height?
● (c) What is the total time the football spends in the air?

Initial velocity of a shell fired is 40 m/s at an angle of 60º
above the horizontal. Draw a schematic sketch of the projection
motion and write down the basic equations needed to solve this
problem. (a) Find horizontal and vertical components of shell’s
initial velocity. (b) How long does it take for the shell to reach
the maximum height above ground? (c) At its highest point, what are
the horizontal and vertical components of its acceleration and
velocity? (Ignore...

A soccer ball is kicked in such a manner that the x and
y components of its position at any time are given by
x = (19.6 m/s)t
and
y = (14.5 m/s)t − (4.90 m/s2)t2,
where x and y will be in meters when
t is in seconds.
(a) Determine expressions for the x and y
components of its velocity at any time. (Use the following as
necessary: t.)
vx
= m/s
vy
= m/s
(b) Determine expressions for...

A football was punted at a velocity of 27 m/s at an angle of 30
degrees (to the horizontal). Ignore air resistance when answering
the following questions.
a. How long will it take the football to reach peak height?
b. What is the horizontal velocity of the football at peak
height?
c. If nothing comes in contact with the football until it hits
the ground, how far will the football travel in the air?
d. List one practical/realistic specific thing...

ball is kicked with an initial speed of 10 m/s above the
horizontal with an initial angle 30 degree. What is the maximum
height this projectile motion? What is the speed of the ball at its
maximum height? How long does it take the ball to reach the maximum
height? What is the speed of the ball when it hits the ground? What
is the magnitude of the acceleration of the ball when it is at the
maximum height?

Projectile in 2D: A ball is thrown with initial speed V , at an
angle θ above the horizontal, over flat ground. Show that the
motion is restricted to a single plane. Neglecting air resistance,
find (a) the time taken for the ball to reach the ground; (b) the
maximum height reached by the ball; (c) the horizontal distance
travelled by the ball before hitting the ground (range); (d) the
kinetic and potential energies at the position of maximum height...
