Question #2773
A playground is on the flat roof of a city school 6.00 m above the street below . The vertical wall of the building is h = 7.00 m high , forming a 1-m high railing around the playground . A ball has fallen to the street below , and a passerby returns it by launching it at an angle of = 53.0 above the horizontal at a point d = 24.0 m from the base of the building wall . The ball takes 2.20 second to reach a point vertically above the wall .
1- Find the speed at which the ball was launched ?
2- Find the vertical distance by which the ball clears the wall ?
3- Find the horizontal distance from the wall to the point on the roof where the ball lands ?
i answer number speed = 18.1 m/s and number 2 vertical distance = 1.13 m
i need help for number 3 ?????
Expert's answer
y(t)=V_0 tsin&alpha;-g t^2/2.

Let a=h-1.

a=V0 tsin&alpha; - g t2/2 g t2/2-V0 tsin&alpha;+a=0
t2-(2V0 sin&alpha;)/g t + 2a/g=0
D=2V02 sin2 &alpha; /g - 2a/g
t1&frasl;2=( (2V0 sin&alpha;)/g &plusmn; &radic;(2V02 sin2&alpha; /g - 8a/g))/2.
We take t2.
x&#039;=V0 cos&alpha; ( (2V0 sin&alpha;)/g + &radic;(2V02 sin2&alpha; /g - 8a/g) ) /2 =
= 18.1cos&alpha; { ((2*18.1*sin&alpha;)/9.8 + &radic;((18.1)2 sin2&alpha; 2/9.8 - (8*6)/9.8) )/2 } = 26.9 m
It is the distance from the point of throwing. Then
x = x&#039;-d = 2.9 m
