Question

A snowball rolls off a barn roof that slopes downward at an angle
of *α*= 45.0∘ . (See the figure below) The edge of the roof
is H= 17.0 m above the ground, and the snowball has a speed of
*v* = 4.00 m/s

as it rolls off the roof. Ignore air resistance.

How far from the edge of the barn does the snowball strike the ground if it doesn't strike anything else while falling?

Answer #1

Solution-

Using the formula

Y = VyT + (1/2)gT^2

here

Y is the vertical distance that snowball has to fall = 17m

Vy is the vertical component of the initial velocity = 4.00(sin
45)

= 2.83 m/sec.

T is the time for the snowball to hit the ground

g (acceleration due to gravity) = 9.8 m/sec^2

Substituting the values,

17 = 2.83T + (1/2)(9.8)T^2

17 = 2.83 T + 4.9T^2

4.9T^2 + 2.83T - 17 = 0

Solving the quadratic equation,

T = 1.596 sec.

Now using formula

X = Vx(T)

here

X is the distance from the edge of the barn where the snowball will
land

Vx is the horizontal component of the initial velocity = 4(cos
45)

= 2.83 m/sec.

T = 1.596 sec

Substituting values,

X = 2.83 * 1.596

X = 4.52 meters

A boy throws a baseball onto a roof and it rolls back down and
off the roof with a speed of 3.80 m/s. If the roof is pitched at
38.0° below the horizon and the roof edge is 3.70 m above the
ground, find the time the baseball spends in the air and the
horizontal distance from the roof edge to the point where the
baseball lands on the ground.

1. Physics and astronomy student club has a recently established
tradition of pumpkin drop, from the top of Wick Science Building to
the "moat" below street level. Although the "experimental data"
have not been made public, there have been rumors of the drop took
2.07 seconds, i.e. falling from rest with negligible air drag.
Based on the rumor, how tall is the building from the "moat" to the
roof?
Ignore air drag or any rotation of pumpkins.

It is generally a good idea to gain an understanding of the
"size" of units. Consider the objects and calculate the kinetic
