Question

A girl kicks a football from the ground. 1.52 s later, it hits the side of a building 18.24 m away, at a height of 2.36 m above the ground.

a) Calculate the speed of the football at the instant it left the ground, assuming air resistance is negligible.

b) Calculate the direction of the football's velocity at launch; give answer as an angle measured relative to the horizontal.

c) Calculate the speed of the football at impact.

d) Was the football rising or falling at the instant it hit the building? Explain.

Answer #1

**PROJECTILE**

**1)**

**along horizontal
________________**

**initial velocity v0x = v0*costheta**

**acceleration ax = 0**

**initial position = xo = 0**

**final position = x = 18.24 m**

**time T = 1.52 s**

**displacement = x - x0**

**from equation of motion**

**x - x0 = v0x*T+ 0.5*ax*T^2**

**18.24 = vox*1.52**

**vox = 18.24/1.52 = 12 m/s**

**along vertical
______________**

**initial velocity v0y = v0*sintheta**

**acceleration ay = -g = -9.8 m/s^2**

**initial position y0 = 0**

**final position y = 2.36**

**from equation of motion**

**y-y0 = v0y*T + 0.5*ay*T^2 .........(2)**

**2.36 = voy*1.52 - 0.5*9.8*1.52^2**

**voy = 9 m/s**

**a)**

**speed vo = sqrt(vox^2+voy^2) = sqrt(12^2+9^2) = 15
m/s**

**(b)**

**direction = tan^-1(Voy/vox) = 36.8**

**(c)**

**vy = voy + ay*T**

**vy = 9 - 9.8*1.52 = -5.896 m/s**

**vx = vox + ax*T**

**vx = 12 m/s**

**speed v = sqrt(vx^2+vy^2) = 13.4 m/s**

**-----------------**

**(d)**

**vy is negative**

**the football is falling at the instant it hit the
building**

1. A boy kicks a soccer ball from the ground. 0.670 s later, it

1. Two identical eggs were thrown at the same time from the top
of a building of height 100 m at a speed 20. One egg was thrown at
an angle 40° above the horizontal while another was thrown at the
same angle but below the horizontal. How long does it take for the
other egg to hit the ground after the one of the eggs hits the
ground?
Does the time difference between the eggs hitting the ground
depend...

A football is kicked from ground level with an initial velocity
of 24.2 m/s at angle of 51.0° above the horizontal. How long, in
seconds, is the football in the air before it hits the ground?
Ignore air resistance.

A boy kicks a rock off a cliff with a speed of 18.2 m/s at an
angle of 54.0° above the horizontal. The rock hits the ground 5.21
s after it was kicked.
How high is the cliff?
What is the speed of the rock right before it hits the
ground?
What is the maximum height of the rock in the air, measured from
the top of the cliff

A water balloon is launched at a speed of 27 m/s and an angle of
36 degrees above the horizontal. The water balloon hits a tall
building located 27 m from the launch pad. At what height above the
ground level will the water balloon hit the building? Calculate the
answer in meters (m) and rounded to three significant figures.
Please show work :)

A ball is thrown horizontally from the top of a building hits
the ground 0.25 s later, Ignore air resistance. If it had been
thrown with twice the speed in the same direction, it would have
hit the ground in:
A) 0.40 s
B) 0.50 s
C) 1.00 s
D) 0.25 s

A projectile is thrown horizontally at 11.2 m/s. The projectile
hits the ground 0.533 s later. What is the angle of impact the
projectile makes with the horizontal ground?

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?

A projectile is shot from the edge of a cliff 115 m m above

at ground level.
B)Determine the distance XX of point PP from the base of the
vertical cliff.
C)At the instant just before the projectile hits point PP, find
the horizontal and the...

A major leaguer hits a baseball so that it leaves the bat at a
speed of 29.0 m/s and at an angle of 35.0o above the horizontal.
You can ignore air resistance. a. At what two times is the baseball
at a height of 11.6 m above the point at which it left the bat? b.
