Question

3. (a) An outfielder fields a baseball 280 ft away from home plate and throws it directly to the catcher with an initial velocity of 100 ft/s. Assume that the velocity v(t) of the ball after t seconds satisfies the di↵erential equation dv dt = 1 10 v because of air resistance. How long does it take for the ball to reach home plate? (Ignore any vertical motion of the ball.) (Instructor’s hint: Recall that a di↵erential equation of the form dv/dt = kv has solution v(t) = v(0)ekt.) (b) The manager of the team wonders whether the ball will reach home plate sooner if it is relayed by an infielder. The shortstop can position himself directly between the outfielder and home plate, catch the ball thrown by the infielder, turn, and throw the ball to the catcher with an initial velocity of 105 ft/s. The manager clocks the relay time of the shortstop (catching, turning, throwing) at half a second. How far from home plate should the shortstop position himself to minimize the total time for the ball to reach home plate? Should the manager encourage a direct throw or a relayed throw? What if the shortstop can throw at 115 ft/s? (Instructor’s hint: Let x represent the distance between the shortstop and home plate, then find an expression for the time it takes that ball to reach home plate as a function of x. It is also helpful to use a variable w to represent the shortstop’s throwing velocity, since you can then substitute the di↵erent given values in place of w.) (c) For what throwing velocity of the shortstop does a relayed throw take the same time as a direct throw?

Michael Jordan makes a throw from the outfield to home plate
in an attempt to throw out the runner on a sacrifice fly. He throws
the ball at 45 m/s and the ball is caught by the catcher on the fly
at approximately the same height as the height at which the ball
left Jordan's hand.
The ball undergoes a horizontal displacement of 100 m in a
time of 2.3 s
a) At what angle did Jordan release the ball?...

The pitcher throws a pitch from the mound towards home plate
18.4 meters away. The ball is released horizontally from a height
of 2 m with a velocity of 42.0 m/s. Find the height above the
ground when it gets there.

A
ball is thrown directly upward from a height of 3 ft with an
initial velocity of 20 ft/sec. the function s(t) = -16t^2+20t+3
gives the height of the ball, in feet, t seconds after it has been
thrown. Determine the time at which the ball reaches its maximum
height and find the maximum height.

A ball is thrown vertically upward from a height of 5 ft with an
initial velocity of 83 ft/s. The distance s (in feet) of the ball
from the ground after t seconds is s = s(t) = 5 + 83t − 16t^2. (a)
What is the velocity v, in feet per second, of the ball after 2
seconds?
(b) When, in seconds, will the ball reach its maximum height?
(Round your answer to one decimal place.)
(c) What is...

A baseball pitcher is attempting to strike out a batter and
they throw their best fast ball at 40m/s. The distance between the
pitchers mound and the center of home plate is 17.5m. The batter
swings the bat at an average of 12 rad/s just 0.3s after the
pitcher releases the ball and the angular displacement of the bat
from the batters shoulder to the hitting position directly over the
place is 1.65 rads.
Will the bat strike the ball,...

A baseball player standing 20.0m away from a ﬂat-roof garage
throws a ball with the speed 16.0m/s at 40◦ above the horizontal.
The ball leaves player’s hand 2.0m above the ground and lands on
the roof a 4.0m above the ground.
How far above the ground does the ball reach?
How long is the ball in ﬂight before landing on the roof?
How far past the edge of the roof, show as x in the picture,
does the ball land?...
