Question

A projectile is launched with an initial speed of 40.0 m/s at an angle of 35.0° above the horizontal. The projectile lands on a hillside 3.85 s later. Neglect air friction. (Assume that the +x-axis is to the right and the +y-axis is up along the page.) (a) What is the projectile's velocity at the highest point of its trajectory? magnitude m/s direction ° counterclockwise from the +x-axis (b) What is the straight-line distance from where the projectile was launched to where it hits its target? m

Answer #1

a)

Initial horizontal velocity of projectile

Initial vertical velocity of projectile

At the highest point of projectiles trajectory, its vertical velocity is zero, it has only horizontal velocity which is same as initial horizontal velocity.

and

Velocity of projectile at highest point

b) Horizontal distance travelled by projectile

Vertical distance travelled by projectile

Straight line distance from where the projectile was launched to where it hits target is

A projectile is launched at a speed of 39.1m/s and an angle of
25˚ above the horizontal surface so that it lands on a target 120 m
away. Neglect air resistance. The projectile is in the air for
3.4s.
Someone constructs a wall between the launch site and the target
that is just high enough to block the projectile's path. If the
launch speed cannot be changed, at what angle could we launch the
projectile to ensure that it still...

7)A projectile is launched with velocity 68 m/s at an angle of
60° with the horizontal (x-axis). The magnitude of the velocity at
the highest point in its trajectory is ____________m/s.

What is the current in a 45 kΩ resistor with
150 Vacross it?
A 14 kg projectile is launched at
380 m/s at a 55 ∘ angle to the horizontal. At
the peak of its trajectory it collides with a second projectile
moving horizontally, in the opposite direction, at
140 m/s . The two stick together and land
9.3 km horizontally downrange from the first projectile's
launch point.?

A projectile is fired with an initial velocity of 75.0 m/s at an
angle of 33.0 degrees above the horizontal. It lands on a hillside
50m above the level from which it was fired. Determine 1) the time
of flight of the projectile. 2) the maximum height to which it
rises. 3) the horizontal distance from launching to landing
points.

You throw a ball torwards a wall at speed 17 m/s and at an angle
40.0° above the horizontal. The wall is 22.0 m from the release
point of the ball.
(a) How long does the ball take to reach the wall?
(b) How far above the release point does the ball hit the
wall?
(c) What are the horizontal and
vertical components of its velocity as it hits the
wall?
(d) When it hits, has it passed the highest...

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): A projectile is given an initial velocity of 34.4 m/s at an
angle of 57.5 degrees with respect to the horizontal. How far has
it moved in the x-direction at the time when its speed in the
y-direction is 10.3 m/s?
b): A projectile is launched with an initial velocity of 31.5
m/s at 68.2 degrees with respect to the horizontal. What is the
speed of the projectile 1.05 s after being launched. Assume the
speed is measured in...

Motion of the CM, 2D:a)Review question: Projectile 1 is fired
upward with initial speed 240 m/s, at an angle of 60° above the
horizontal. It lands later on the horizontal ground a distance x
away. Find x. Show your setup and work. b)An identical projectile 2
is fired with the same initial speed and angle. However at the
highest point of its path, it explodes into two pieces, 2A and 2B,
each with half the original mass. The explosion forces...

A projectile is launched with an initial velocity v = 8 (m / s)
i + 6 (m / s) j near the surface of the Earth. As the projectile
goes up its acceleration has a magnitude of _________ and an
address towards ________. When it is at the highest point of its
trajectory, its acceleration has a magnitude of ____________ and an
address to __________. At that highest point your speed is
____________. While the object is lowering its...

A projectile is launched from a cannon; it has an initial speed
of 85 m/s at an angle of 33 degrees above horizontal. The muzzle of
