Question

A basketball player throws a basketball horizontally with an initial velocity of 5 m/s at an initial height of 1.6 meters.

If the basketball lands on the ground, how far (in meters) does the basketball land from the player's feet? Round your answer to the nearest hundredth (0.01)

Answer #1

A baseball pitcher throws a pitch with an initial velocity of
46.0 m/s, directed horizontally. How far does the ball drop
vertically by the time it crosses the plate 18.0 m away?

A baseball player throws a ball into the air with an initial
velocity of 22 m/s [up].
a) How high up does the ball go?
b) If she catches the ball from the same height that she threw
it, how long was the ball in the air?

2. Spencer throws a basketball out of a helicopter hoping to
make a basket on the ground below. He throws it with a downward
velocity of 5 meters per second from a height of 100 meters. Note
that the acceleration of gravity is a constant 9.8 meters per
second squared (downward).
(a) Write the above information as an initial value problem for
the height (position) s(t) in meters of the ball t seconds after
Spencer throws it.
(b) Solve the...

A ball is thrown toward the east with an initial velocity of
15.0 m/s at 36.9° above the horizontal. It is released from a
height of X meters, and it lands on the level ground. 3. What is
the velocity of the ball in component form, if x is east and y is
up? 4. Where is the ball when it reaches its maximum height? (Give
both x and y positions.) 5. When and where does the ball land?
X=4...

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 2.0 m tall basketball player is standing a horizontal distance
of 7.0 m away from a basketball hoop. The height of the hoop is 3.0
m above the floor. The basketball player throws the ball at an
angle of 60 degrees above the horizontal, and from an initial
height of 2.0 m above the floor. (Use g= 9.8 m/s2 and neglect air
friction effects). Give your answer to 2 significant figures. a)
How long does it take for the...

a
projectile is launched horizontally from a height of 11 meters at a
velocity of 25 m/s. how far will it flu horizontally before it hits
the ground?

1. A girl throws a rock horizontally, with a velocity of 13 m/s,
from a bridge. It falls 17 m to the water below. How far does the
rock travel horizontally before striking the water, assuming
negligible air resistance? Use g = 9.8 m/s2
2. Suppose one of Napoleon cannons has a muzzle speed
of 32m/s. It was aimed at 54 ◦ angle. What height can
the cannon ball reach? Use g = 9.8 m/s2
3.A car traveling 69 km/h...

Suppose you toss a basketball upward while standing still with
an initial velocity of 7 meters/second and it rises to about 2.45
meters. That's below the standard 3.05 meters (10 feet) for a
basketball hoop, so you miss the shot. Which of these would get you
the goal
a)
Give the same 7 m/s from the same height, but early in a jump
upward at 1 m/s.
b)
From standing still, give a velocity of 8 m/s.
c)
Give the...

A soccer ball is kicked with an initial horizontal velocity of
15 m/s and an initial vertical velocity of 15 m/s.
What is the initial speed of the ball?
What is the initial angle θθ of the ball with respect to the
ground?
What is the maximum height the ball goes above the ground?
How far from where it was kicked will the ball land?
What is the speed of the ball 0.7 seconds after it was
kicked?
How high...
