Question

A cannonball is shot (from ground level) with an initial horizontal velocity of 33 m/s and an initial vertical velocity of 25 m/s.

What is the initial speed of the cannonball?

What is the initial angle θ of the cannonball with respect to the ground?

What is the maximum height the cannonball goes above the ground?

How far from where it was shot will the cannonball land?

What is the speed of the cannonball 3.6 seconds after it was shot?

How high above the ground is the cannonball 3.6 seconds after it is shot?

Answer #1

Given,

vx = 33 m/s ; vy = 25 m/s

a)The intial velocity will be given by:

vi = sqrt (vx^2 + vy^2)

vi = sqrt (33^2 + 25^2) = 41.4 m/s

**Hence, vi = 41.4 m/s**

b)the angl wrt ground will be:

theta = tan^-1(vy/vx) = tan^-1(25/33) = 37.15 deg

**Hence, theta = 37.15 deg**

c)the cannonball can be modelled as a projectile, so the max height reached by it will be:

H = vy^2/2g

H = 25^2/2 x 9.8 = 31.89 m

**Hence, H = 31.89 m**

b)Let D be the distance where it lands.

D = vx t

we know from eqn of motion

v = u + at

at max height, v = 0

t = vy/g = 25/9.8 = 2.55 s

T = 2t = 2 x 2.55 = 5.1 s

D = vx t = 33 x 5.1 = 168.3 m

**Hence, D = 168.3 m**

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 bullet shot from a small firearm has an initial velocity
v0 of 52 m/s at an angle theta = 42 with respect to the horizontal.
At the maximum trajectory (max height), we observe that, the bullet
explodes into two small pieces both of which are of equal mass. One
fragment immediately after the explosion is therefore
zero m/s and it falls vertically.
How long (in seconds) does it take the shell to reach this
point trajectory (max height)?
What is...

A 3 kg cannonball is shot straight up from ground level at a
velocity of 30 m/s. For the following questions, neglect air
resistance and assume acceleration due to gravity is -10
m/s2.
(a) Use the 1D equations of motion to find:
i. The maximum height the cannonball reaches
ii. The time it takes to reach this height
iii. The time it takes to fall back to the ground
iv. The speed with which it hits the ground

A shot putter releases the shot some distance above the level
ground with a velocity of 11.8 m/s, 52.8° above the horizontal. The
shot hits the ground 2.10 s later. You can ignore air resistance.
(Assume the horizontal direction of the shot and upward are
positive.)
(a) What are the components of the shot's acceleration while in
flight?
m/s2 (horizontal component)
m/s2 (vertical component)
(b) What are the components of the shot's velocity at the beginning
of its trajectory?
m/s...

A small cannonball is shot straight up from the ground with a
launch speed of 26.3 m/s. 2.00 seconds after the cannonball is
launched, a ping pong ball is dropped from a height of 36.5 m. Both
objects only move in the y-direction.
2a. Where (with respect to the ground) do the cannonball and the
ping pong ball pass one another?
2b. How fast and in what direction are each of the balls
traveling when they pass one another?
2c....

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 shell is shot with an initial velocity of 21 m/s, at an angle
of 62 degrees above the horizontal. How long does it take for the
shell to get to the top of its trajectory? At the top of the
trajectory, the shell explodes into two fragments of equal mass, as
shown in the figure below. One fragment, whose speed immediately
after the explosion is zero, falls vertically. How far from the gun
does this fragment land, assuming that...
