Question

In a gym with a ceiling height of 30 feet, a player
throws a ball towards a wall that

is 80 feet away. If the ball was released from a height of 5 feet
from the floor and

has an initial velocity of 55 ft/s, what is the highest point at
which the ball could hit

the wall?

Please answer clearly and readable thank you.

Answer #1

A squash player hits a ball with an initial velocity of 40 m/s
towards a wall 5 meters away. The ball is strikes when it is 2
meters from the ground.
a) When the ball is hit completely horizontally, does it strike
the wall or ground?
b) When there ball is hit with an angle of 40 degrees, does the
ball strike the ceiling (the court is 5 m high) or the wall?
c) When the ball is hit with...

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 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 tank cannon fires from an initial height of 8 feet with an
initial velocity of 2500 ft/s.
Is it possible to hit an object that is 20,000 ft away horizontally
and is also 8 feet vertically?
If so what initial angle must the cannon be fired at? If not, then
explain why not.
(Assume only forces acting on projectile is gravity and use g = 32
ft/s2)

A 2.0 m tall basketball player is standing a horizontal distance
of 7.0 m away from a basketball hoop. The height of the hoop is 3.0
m above the floor. The basketball player throws the ball at an
angle of 60 degrees above the horizontal, and from an initial
height of 2.0 m above the floor. (Use g= 9.8 m/s2 and neglect air
friction effects). Give your answer to 2 significant figures. a)
How long does it take for the...

A tennis player hits a ball at ground level, giving it an
initial velocity of 26.0m/s at 55.0? above the horizontal.
What is the ball's acceleration at its highest point?
When this ball lands on the court, how far is it from the place
where it was hit?

A golf ball which is hit from a tee with a height of 2 inches
(1/6 foot) at an angle of 37 degrees with initial velocity 55 feet
/ s.
a) Find a set of two parametric equations which model the path
of the ball.
b) How far did the ball travel before it hit the ground?

1. Ball A was released from the cliff of height H; ball B was
released from the cliff of height 2H. The ratio of velocity of ball
B to ball A just before they hit the ground is: A) 2 B) 2 1/2 C) 1
D) sqrt(2) E) 1/sqrt(2)
2. Object is thrown up with some initial velocity. No air
resistance is present. We can conclude that:
a) Acceleration on the way up is greater than acceleration on
the way...

A man throws a ball straight upward with speed 30 m/s from the
top of a building that is 75 m high. Ignore air resistance and
choose the vertical y-axis to be positive downward with
origin at the point of throw (top of the building).
Represent the initial velocity and the acceleration vectors in
the reference y-axis above.
Find the maximum height the ball reaches with respect to the
ground.
How long does it take the ball to reach the...

Basic Physics: Projectile Motion.
1. Given that a ball is launched perfectly horizontally from a
height of 1.2 meters, and lands on the floor a horizontal distance
of 2.6 meters away, find the initial speed (or "muzzle velocity")
of the ball in meters per second. Use 9.82 meters per second for
"g".
2. A ball is launched at an angle of 56.5 degrees up from the
horizontal, with a muzzle velocity of 7 meters per second, from a
launch point...
