**Projectile** **Problems** with Solutions and

An object moving through the air near the surface of the earth is subject to the constant gravitational acceleration g, directed downward. if the object does not have a propulsion system and we neglect air resistance, then the *motion* of the object is *projectile* *motion*. We can rotate our coordinate system about the y-axis until the velocity vector of the object at t = 0 lies in the x-y plane, and we can choose the orin of our coordinate system to be at the position of the object at t = 0.

For an object thrown at 20 m/s 53º above the horizontal, the vertical component of the initial velocity is 20sin53º = 16.0 m/s [up], and the horizontal component is 20cos53º = 12.0 m/s. acceleration is zero in the horizontal component and g in the vertical. at the top of its rise, the *projectile* has a vertical velocity = zero. A golf ball is projected with a horizontal velocity of 30 m/s and takes 4.0 seconds to reach the ground. Quick Question 1: In the absence of air resistance, a ball of mass m is thrown straht up and reaches a heht of 10 m. The Pythagorean theorem informs us the vector sum of these two components is 14 m/s. With what velocity does the ball strike the ground? A car drives straht off the edge of a cliff that is 54 m hh. A pilot flying a constant 215 km/h horizontally in a low-flying helicopter, wants to drop secret documents into his contact"s open car which is traveling 155 km/h in the same direction on a level hhway 78.0 m below. The horizontal component of the initial velocity was 5 m/s. A soccer ball leaves a cliff 20.2 m above the valley floor, at an angle of 10 degrees above the horizontal. Jumping at an angle of 32 degrees, what initial speed must the flea have to reach her new home? Wind exerts an average 12.0 N force on the parcel away from the building.
