Question

A projectile is fired from the ground (you can assume the
initial height is the same as the ground) in a field so there are
no obstacles in its way. The same projectile was then fired in the
same way toward a wall that is a horizontal distance (d) m from
where the projectile was fired, and the projectile (as it's going
down) hit the wall. If the wall were slightly farther from where
the projectile was launched (the projectile still hits it as it is
doing down), how would that affect the following? Call down the
positive *y* direction, and toward the wall the positive
*x* direction.

The magnitude of the *x* component of the velocity of the
projectile when it hits the wall.

The magnitude of the *y* component of the velocity of the
projectile when it hits the wall.

The speed of the projectile when it hits the wall.

The distance from the ground to where the projectile hit the
wall.

The maximum height of the projectile.

A 150 gram projectile is fired horizontally from a height of 25
meters above the ground. If the projectile travels 40 meters
horizontally before it hits the ground, what is the velocity of the
projectile right before hitting the ground?

1a. You launch a projectile at an initial speed of 43.8 m/s from
the ground. After 4.30 seconds of flight, the projectile lands on
the ground. At what angle above the horizontal was the projectile
launched?
b. A projectile is fired from the ground, reaches a maximum
height of 28.4 m and lands a distance of 69.3 m away from the
launch point. What was the projectile s launch velocity?
c. You launch a projectile toward a tall building, from...

Q3: A cannonball with an initial height of 1.5 meter above the
ground is fired from a cannon at an angle of θ above the horizontal
and with initial velocity of 40 m/s. The cannonball travels a
horizontal distance of 30 meters and passes over a 14 meter high
castle wall. Find the initial firing angle θ How much time it takes
for the ball to pass over the castle wall ?. Find the velocity
(magnitude and direction ) if...

A projectile is fired at an angle of 28 degrees above the
horizontal with an initial velocity of 1,800 feet per second from
an altitude of 1,000 feet above the ground.
A) Formulate the vector valued function (in simplified form) for
the position of the projectile at any time, t.
B) When and where (in terms of down range distance) does the
projectile strike the ground? Be clear and label your results,
including units.
C) When does the projectile reach...

Two seconds after a projectile is fired from a gun, located on
the ground, it has a velocity equal to: v = 30i +20.4j, m/s
1.) Determine the initial speed of the projectile
2.) At what angle is the projectile fired?
3.) How long does it take the projectile to reach the highest
point in its trajectory?
4.) What is the speed of the projectile at it's highest point in
its trajectory?
5.) What is the magnitude of the projectile's...

A 44.0-kg projectile is fired at an angle of 30.0° above the
horizontal with an initial speed of 144 m/s from the top of a cliff
120 m above level ground, where the ground is taken to be
y = 0.
(a) What is the initial total mechanical energy of the
projectile? (Give your answer to at least three significant
figures.)
(b) Suppose the projectile is traveling 102.1 m/s at its maximum
height of y = 336 m.
How much...

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.
