Question

A ball is thrown in the air from player A to player B. When player A throws the ball, player B is 18 m away from player A and runs away from player A with an average velocity of 7 m/s for 1.5 seconds. Unfortunately, player B ends up being 3 m short of where the ball should be caught. A) Draw and label a diagram of the physical situation (include the trajectory). B) Determine the horizontal distance that the ball travels . C) Determine the initial velocity that the ball was thrown with. D) Determine the average velocity that player B should be in order to catch the ball

Answer #1

1) a ball is thrown in the +y direction from a location 1.5m
above the horizontal surface. the ball travels 3 seconds before
reaching maximum height. what is the magnitude and direction of the
velocity the ball has just before it hits the surface? ( please
draw out with equations)
2) a catapult launches a pumpkin at 40 m/s at 75 degrees above
the horizontal. the pumpkin sails over a wall that is 3m tall and
10m away from the...

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?

A 70.0 kg football player leaps straight up into the air (with
no horizontal velocity) to catch a pass. He catches the 0.430 kg
ball precisely at the peak of his jump, when he is 15.2 inches off
the ground. He hits the ground 1.11 inches away from where he
leapt. If the ball was moving horizontally when it was caught, how
fast was the ball travelling?

A ball is thrown at a velocity of 35 m/s at an angle of 42º
above the horizontal. It hits a wall 96 m away.
Find the time for the ball to reach the top of its
trajectory.
Find the maximum height reached.
Find the total time of flight tf from the origin
until it hits the wall.
Find the height yf at which it hits the wall.

A 116 kg football player is running at 8.05 m/s. A hard-thrown
0.410 kg football has a speed of 23.5 m/s. (Assume the football
player is running in the +x-direction.)
Assuming that the football player catches the ball with his feet
off the ground with both of them moving horizontally, calculate the
following.
(a) the final velocity (in m/s) if the ball and player are going
in the same direction (Indicate the direction with the sign of your
answer. Enter...

A ball is thrown off the top of a 75 ft high building. If it
strikes the ground 60ft away from the building 3 seconds later,
determine the initial velocity, the angle at launch and the
magnitude of the ball's velocity when it hits the ground

A baseball is thrown from second base to first base in a double
play. If the ball is released with a vertical velocity of 3.2 m/s
and is caught 18 m away at the same height as it had at the instant
of release

A player passes a basketball to another player who catches it at
the same level from which it was thrown. The initial speed of the
ball is 7.3 m/s , and it travels a distance of 3.9 m.
A) What was the initial direction of the ball? B) What was its
time of flight?

A
ball thrown horizontally from the roof of a building 7.50m tall.
the ball lands at 9.75 m away from the base. 1) how much time does
it take for the ball to land? 2) how much is the initial velocity
of the ball?

A boy 13.0 m above the ground in a tree throws a ball for his
dog, who is standing right below the tree and starts running the
instant the ball is thrown. (a) If the boy throws the ball
horizontally at 7.50 m/s, how fast must the dog run to catch the
ball just as it reaches the ground? (b) How far from the tree will
the dog catch the ball? (c) Find the velocity of the ball
(magnitude and...
