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 tsinα-g t^2/2.

Let a=h-1.

a=V

t

D=2V

t

We take t

x'=V

= 18.1cosα { ((2*18.1*sinα)/9.8 + √((18.1)

It is the distance from the point of throwing. Then

x = x'-d = 2.9 m

Let a=h-1.

a=V

_{0}tsinα - g t^{2}/2 g t^{2}/2-V_{0}tsinα+a=0t

^{2}-(2V_{0}sinα)/g t + 2a/g=0D=2V

_{0}^{2}sin^{2}α /g - 2a/gt

_{1⁄2}=( (2V_{0}sinα)/g ± √(2V_{0}^{2}sin^{2}α /g - 8a/g))/2.We take t

_{2}.x'=V

_{0}cosα ( (2V_{0}sinα)/g + √(2V_{0}^{2}sin^{2}α /g - 8a/g) ) /2 == 18.1cosα { ((2*18.1*sinα)/9.8 + √((18.1)

^{2}sin^{2}α 2/9.8 - (8*6)/9.8) )/2 } = 26.9 mIt is the distance from the point of throwing. Then

x = x'-d = 2.9 m
