PHYS16 – Lecture 8 Projectile Motion: Max Range and Height September 24, 2010 Fox Trot by Bill Amend

2
Agenda Derive Shoot the Monkey Derive Max height and Range for Projectile Motion Outside Demo Day

3
Derive Shoot the Monkey If shoot gun and monkey falls from height at the same time, where do I aim gun to hit monkey? (Answer: At monkey) http://physics.ucr.edu/~wudka/Physics7/Notes_www/img149.gif v0v0 θ x monkey y monkey

4
Derive Shoot the Monkey 1) Find time for bullet to go x monkey, then solve for bullet’s y position

5
Derive Shoot the Monkey 2) Find the monkey’s y position at the same time

6
Derive Shoot the Monkey 3) Set the two positions equal to each other and find out where We should aim our gun… Aim at Monkey!!!

Outside Demo Day

9
Drop Balls off of Merrill Beach Objective: to see which balls are the most affected by air resistance – Physics says that in vacuum all balls should fall with the same acceleration and land at the same time, neglecting air resistance

10
Shoot Water Rockets Objective: to determine the angle with air resistance that allows for the max distance – Physics says that without air resistance, angle that give max distance is 45 degrees

11
Sling Shot Objective: Calculate the initial velocity of a sling shot – Shoot the sling shot only in x then measure where it hit the ground and how long it took it to hit the ground – Initial velocity = distance/time, as long as you neglect air resistance
