Question

*The physics of a fired canon ball.*

A cannon ball is fired with a velocity of 125 m/s at 25.0° above
the horizontal.

- Determine the maximum height the cannon ball reaches in its path.
- Determine the time it takes to reach maximum height.
- Determine the hang time of the cannon ball.
- Determine the range of the cannon ball.
- Draw a sketch of the motion of the projectile including the horizontal and vertical components of velocity when the projectile strikes the earth. Draw the appropriate relative lengths of the vectors for these components.

Answer #1

A
ball is thrown from the roof of a building. The initial velocity
vector is at an angle of 53.0° above the horizontal. It is at
maximum height in 1.04 seconds. Express all vectors in terms of
unit vectors i and j. The ball strikes the ground at a horizontal
distance from the building of 33.1 meters.
a.) What is the vertical velocity (vector) at t=1.04
seconds?
b.) What is the initial vertical velocity (vector)?
c) What is the inital...

A 19.0-kg cannonball is fired from a cannon with muzzle speed of
1150 m/s at an angle of 42.0° with the horizontal. A second ball is
fired with the same initial speed at an angle of 90.0°. Let y = 0
at the cannon.
(a) Use the isolated system model to find the maximum height
reached by each ball. hfirst ball =? m
hsecond ball = ? m
(b) Use the isolated system model to find the total mechanical
energy...

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 tennis ball is fired from an air cannon, staright up from
ground level, at intial speed vo. At the instant it
reaches its peak, a second tennis ball is fired at the same intial
speed. At what fraction of the maximum height reached by the first
ball do the two collide? Air resistance is negligible.

A 9.8 kg cannonball was fired from a cannon straight up with an
initial velocity of 42 m/s.
(A) Assuming that all its initial kinetic energy was transformed
into gravitational energy, what is the maximum height that the
cannonball could reach?
(B) Suppose that 20% of its initial kinetic energy was lost due
to friction with the air (air resistance). What is the maximum
height that the cannonball could now reach?
(C) How long will it take, after the cannon...

A projectile is fired with an initial velocity of 75.0 m/s at an
angle of 33.0 degrees above the horizontal. It lands on a hillside
50m above the level from which it was fired. Determine 1) the time
of flight of the projectile. 2) the maximum height to which it
rises. 3) the horizontal distance from launching to landing
points.

An artillery shell is fired with an initial velocity of 300 m/s
at 59.0° above the horizontal. To clear an avalanche, it explodes
on a mountainside 41.0 s after firing. (a) What are the x
and y components of the shell where it explodes, relative
to its firing point? (b) What is the velocity of the shell
(magnitude and direction) just before explosion? (c) What was the
maximum height reached by the projectile? (d) How long did it take
for...

A ball is fired from the ground into the air. When y= 13 m, its
velocity is v = (8 i +
15j) m/s. Determine: a) the maximum height reached
by the ball b) the horizontal distance that the ball travel c) the
magnitude and angle of the ball's velocity just before it hits the
ground.

A projectile is fired from the origin (at y = 0 m) as shown in the
figure. The initial velocity components are V0x = 400 m/s and V0y =
82 m/s. The projectile reaches maximum height at point P, then it
falls and strikes the ground at point Q. In the figure, the
y-component of the velocity of the shell of point P is closest
to:
-80 m/s
zero
-160 m/s
+80 m/s
+160 m/s

A stone is projected at a cliff of height ℎ = 52 ? with an
initial speed of 42.0 ?/? directed at angle ?? = 60.0° above the
horizontal. A. Find the vertical and horizontal components of the
ball’s initial velocity. (2 mark) B. Find the maximum height ? that
the ball reaches. C. Find at what time the stone strikes
?. D. Find the ball velocity (in unit vector nutation)
just before it strikes ?. E. At what horizontal...
