Question

A projectile is launched at a speed of 39.1m/s and an angle of 25˚ above the horizontal surface so that it lands on a target 120 m away. Neglect air resistance. The projectile is in the air for 3.4s.

Someone constructs a wall between the launch site and the target that is just high enough to block the projectile's path. If the launch speed cannot be changed, at what angle could we launch the projectile to ensure that it still reaches the target?

Answer #1

A projectile is launched with an initial speed of 40.0 m/s at an
angle of 35.0° above the horizontal. The projectile lands on a
hillside 3.85 s later. Neglect air friction. (Assume that the
+x-axis is to the right and the +y-axis is up along the page.) (a)
What is the projectile's velocity at the highest point of its
trajectory? magnitude m/s direction ° counterclockwise from the
+x-axis (b) What is the straight-line distance from where the
projectile was launched...

1a. You launch a projectile at an initial speed of 43.8 m/s from
the ground. After 4.30 seconds of flight, the projectile lands on
the ground. At what angle above the horizontal was the projectile
launched?
b. A projectile is fired from the ground, reaches a maximum
height of 28.4 m and lands a distance of 69.3 m away from the
launch point. What was the projectile s launch velocity?
c. You launch a projectile toward a tall building, from...

A projectile is launched upward with an initial velocity of 25
m/s at an angle of 53 degrees above the horizontal.
How far will the projectile travel horizontally before it
reaches the same height it was launched from?
How long will the projectile be in the air if it is launched
from a height of 32 meters above flat ground?
The answers are 60m and 5.2s. Can you please show how to get to
that?

A projectile is launched at a height of 5ft. On the ground with
an initial speed of 1000 feet per second and an angle of 60 with
the horizontal. Use the movement of a projectile that does not
consider air resistance and determines:
The vector function that describes the position of the
projectile
The parametric equations that describe the motion
The time it took for the projectile to go up
The maximum height
The time of flight
The maximum horizontal...

A projectile is launched 3.0 meters above the ground. The
initial velocity of the projectile is and can vary between 15.0 m/s
- 75.0 m/s with an initial angle of that can vary between 10.0 -
80.0 . You are free to choose any values between these ranges.
Clearly indicate your value for and . a) What is the maximum height
of the projectile? b) How long is the projectile in the air? c) How
far from the launch does...

A 4.0 kg projectile is launched into the air with an initial
velocity of 15 m/s at an angle of 30° above the horizontal. When
the projectile reaches its maximum height it explodes, splitting in
two parts, one of mass 3.0 kg and one of mass 1.0 kg. Assume the
explosion was essentially instantaneous.
Determine the maximum height of the projectile using energy.
After the explosion, if the 1.0 kg mass is moving at 1/2 the
speed it was right...

A projectile is launched 3.0 meters above the ground. The
initial velocity of the projectile is vi and can vary between 15.0
m/s - 75.0 m/s with an initial angle of θi that can vary between
10.0o - 80.0o. You are free to choose any values between these
ranges. Clearly indicate your value for vi and θi. a) What is the
maximum height of the projectile? b) How long is the projectile in
the air? c) How far from the...

An arrow is launched with the initial speed of 30.0 m/s at a
37-degree angle above the horizontal into a vertical wall 72.0 m
away. At what height above the ground will the arrow strike the
wall?

A projectile is launched from point O at the edge of a cliff by
the sea, with initial speed of 22 m/sm/s at an angle of 45° above
the horizontal. The projectile rises and then falls into the sea at
point P. The projectile travels a total horizonal distance D = 38
mm from the cliff. Ignore air resistance.
a) If you want to maximize the horizontal range, how should you
adjust the launch angle?
b) Calculate the time the...

You launch a projectile at an initial speed of 46.4 m/s from the
ground. After 5.70 seconds of flight, the projectile lands on the
ground. At what angle above the horizontal was the projectile
launched?
A) 26.5 degrees
B) 24.1 degrees
C) 37.1 degrees
D) 48.2 degrees
