Question

Problem 3: While playing basketball, a batter hits the ball as it crosses home plate and gives it an initial velocity of 45m/s and launches it an angle of 19 degree above the horizontal (x-axis). The outfield wall is located 115m away from the home plate and is 3m high. The batter hits the ball when it is 1m above home pate.

Part A: Find the equation describing the position and velocity of the ball as function of the

Part B: Does the ball go over thew all fro a home run? Justify answer

Part C: A bird is flying at a constant height of 15m above the field while the ball is in the air. Is the bird in danger of begin hit by the ball?

Problem 2: A car is in a drag race where it accelerated from rest at 3m/s^2 until it reaches it maximum velocity. The race is 100m long.

Part A: If the car reaches its maximum velocity after 5 seconds, what is the cars maximum velocity.

Part B: How fat has the car travelled when it reaches it maximum velocity?

Part C: As the race is 100m long, how long does it take for the car to reach the finish line?

Answer #1

problem 2

a)

v = at = 3* 5 = 15 m/s

b)

d = 0.5 at^2 = 0.5* 1.5* 5^2 = 37.5 m

c)

t = (100 - 37.5) / 15 = 4.167

tital time taken by car

T = 5 + t = 9.167 s

=====

3.

a)

position is given by

y = ho + v sin x * t - 0.5 gt^2

y = 1 + 45 sin 19 t - 4.9 t^2

y = 1+ 14.61 t - 4.9 t^2

horizontal velocity

vx = 45 cos 19 = 42.55 m/s

vertical component of velocity

vy = 45 sin 19 - 9.8t =14.6 - 9.8 t

b)

time taken by ball to reach home run

t = 115 /42.55 = 2.703 s

vertical position

h = 1 + 14.6* 2.703 - 4.9* 2.703^2

h = 4.66 m

yes, the ball will clear the given height

c)

max height reached by the ball

H = 1 + 14.6^2 / 19.6 = 11.876 m

since bird height(15m) is greater than max height reached ( 11.876 m)

so bird will be safe

Comment before rate in case any doubt, will reply for sure.. goodluck

A car is in a drag race where it accelerated from rest at 3m/s^2
until it reaches it maximum velocity. The race is 100m long.
Part A: If the car reaches its maximum velocity after 5 seconds,
what is the cars maximum velocity.
Part B: How fat has the car travelled when it reaches it maximum
velocity?
Part C: As the race is 100m long, how long does it take for the
car to reach the finish line?

A pitcher fires a 92.5 mph fastball right over home plate. The
batter makes firm contact with a wooden bat with density .6725
g/cm^3 and drives the baseball high into left field. The ball
leaves the bat a height 3ft 6.25in above home plate at an angle of
62.125degrees above horizontal and with a speed of 87.15mph. In
this particular direction, the outfield fence is 417ft from home
plate and exactly 8ft in height.
a. What is the maximum height...

A batter hits a fly ball which leaves the bat 0.89 m above the
ground at an angle of 62 ∘ with an initial speed of 28 m/s heading
toward centerfield. Part A) Ignore air resistance.How far from home
plate would the ball land if not caught? Part B) The ball is caught
by the centerfielder who, starting at a distance of 103 m from home
plate, runs straight toward home plate at a constant speed and
makes the catch...
