Question

A 2.00-m-tall basketball player is standing on the floor 10.0 m from the basket, as in the figure below. If he shoots the ball at a 40.0° angle with the horizontal, at what initial speed must he throw the basketball so that it goes through the hoop without striking the backboard? The height of the basket is 3.05 m.

Answer #1

I will assume that the center of the basket is
10 m away and 3.05 m high and that the launch height is 2
m

since the angle is at 40 degrees let's look at
y(t) first

y(t)=2+v0*sin(40)*t-.5*g*t^2

and x(t)=v0*cos(th)*t

when y(t)=3.05 and x(t)=10, we have a swish as
long as the ball is descending.

1.05=v0*sin(40)*t-.5*g*t^2

10=v0*cos(40)*t

t=10/(v0*cos(40))

1.05=10*sin(40)/cos(40)-

.5*g*100/(v0^2*cos^2(40))

v0^2=-

.5*g*100/(cos^2(40)*(1.05-10*tan(40)))

v0=**10.67 m/s**

check to see if the
ball is descending

vy(t)=v0*sin(40)-g*t

it reaches apogee at

v0*sin(40)/g

.7 seconds

at that point x(t)=v0*cos(th)*t

=5.715 meters

so the ball is descending when x(t)=10

A 1.95 m tall basketball player wants to sink the ball into a
basket located 12 m from the player, as in Figure P3.58. If he
shoots the ball at a 37° angle, at what initial speed must he throw
the basketball so that it goes through the hoop without striking
the backboard? The heigh from the basket to the ground is 3.05 m.
______ m/s

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...

The free throw line in basketball is 4.57 m (15 ft) from the
basket, which is 3.05 m (10 ft) above the floor. A player standing
on the free throw line throws the ball with an initial speed of
7.40 m/s, releasing it at a height of 2.56 m above the floor. At
what angle above the horizontal must the ball be thrown to exactly
hit the basket? Note that most players will use a large initial
angle rather than...

I want to find the perfect free throw shot in basketball. The
average NBA player holds the ball 2.10 m above the floor as he
releases the shot. The height of the hoop is 3.05 m about the floor
and 4.19 m away from the player. Measurements from video of great
players show that the most accurate free throw shooters launch the
ball at a speed of 7.16 m/s as it leaves the player’s hand at an
angle of 52.0°...

A basketball player wishes to make a stunning last-second
basket. With .8 seconds on the clock, she wants the ball to enter
the hoop (height 3.05m) as time expires in the game. She shoots the
ball with an initial speed of 7 m/s, from 2.1 meters above the
ground.
1. At what angle (from the HORIZONTAL) does she shoot the
ball?
2. Draw qualitatively accurate position, velocity, and
acceleration graphs for both dimensions of the ball's motion while
it is...

A basketball is shot from an initial height of 2.40 m with an
initial speed v0 = 14 m/s directed at an angle θ0 = 30 ∘ above the
horizontal. How far from the basket was the player if he made a
basket? At what angle to the horizontal did the ball enter the
basket?

A basketball leaves a player's hands
at a height of 2.20 mm above the floor. The basket is 2.80 mm
above the floor. The player likes to shoot the ball at a 40.0 ∘∘
angle. If the shot is made from a horizontal distance of 5.70 mm
and must be accurate to ±0.22m (horizontally), what is the range of
initial speeds allowed to make the basket?

A player launches a basketball into the air, and it sails across
the court, before falling through the hoop with a speed of 2m/s.
The basketball has a mass of 600g.
i. If the rim is 3.00m above the ground, and the player jumps
and shoots from a point 2.50m above the ground, how much work will
the player have done on the ball?
ii. If the vertical component of the velocity as the ball falls
through the hoop is...

A basketball player is 10 ft horizontally from the center of the
basket, which is 10 ft off the ground. He is guarded by a good
jumper. At what angle should the player aim the ball if it is
thrown from a height of 7.1 ft with a speed of 26 ft/s? Use
g = 32 ft/s2. [Hint:
1/cos2? = 1 + tan2?]
? = ?

To make a bounce pass, a player throws a 0.55-kg basketball
toward the floor. The ball hits the floor with a speed of 5.5 m/s
at an angle of 58 ∘ to the vertical.
Part A
If the ball rebounds with the same speed and angle, what was the
magnitude of the impulse delivered to it by the floor?
