10 Components of Motion You can use the same approach to describe motion— and the motion doesn’t have to be in straight lines.You can use the same approach to describe motion— and the motion doesn’t have to be in straight lines.

Think of ball moving in x- and y-directions simultaneously.Think of ball moving in x- and y-directions simultaneously. That is, it has a velocity in the x-direction (v x ) and a velocity in the y-direction (v y ) at the same time.That is, it has a velocity in the x-direction (v x ) and a velocity in the y-direction (v y ) at the same time. The combined velocity components describe the actual motion of the ball.The combined velocity components describe the actual motion of the ball.

11 Components of Motion If a constant velocity (v) in a direction at an angle (Θ) relative to the x-axis is given,If a constant velocity (v) in a direction at an angle (Θ) relative to the x-axis is given, then the velocities in the x- and y- directions are obtained by resolving, or breaking down, the velocity vector into components of motion: v x = v cos Θ v y = v sin Θ

12 Ex. Shooting Pool Shooting a game of pool, you hit a ball that causes it to move diagonally with a constant velocity of 0.50 m/s at an angle of 37° relative to the x-axis. Find how far it travels in 3.0 s by using x- and y- components of motion.

13 Projectile Motion A familiar example of two-dimensional, curvilinear motion is the motion of objects thrown or projected by some means (cannon, baseball bat, etc.)A familiar example of two-dimensional, curvilinear motion is the motion of objects thrown or projected by some means (cannon, baseball bat, etc.) Projectile Motion is considered to be in free fall, so the only acceleration of a projectile is due to gravity.Projectile Motion is considered to be in free fall, so the only acceleration of a projectile is due to gravity. We can use vector components to analyze projectile motion. We simply break up the motion into its x- and y-components and treat them separately.We can use vector components to analyze projectile motion.

14 Horizontal Projection A ball is projected from a height of 25.0 m above the ground and is thrown with an initial horizontal velocity of 8.25 m/s (fig 3.16) (a)How long is the ball in flight before striking the ground? (b)How far from the building does the ball strike the ground?

15 Teeing Off A golf ball is hit off the tee with an initial velocity of 30.0 m/s at an angle of 35° to the horizontal (fig 3.17) (a)What is the maximum height reached by the ball? (b)What is its range?

16 Hit or Miss? A young girl standing on a bridge throws a stone with an initial velocity of 12 m/s at a downward angle of 45° to the horizontal, in an attempt to hit a block of wood floating in the river below. If the stone is thrown from a height of 20 m and it reaches the river when the block is 13 m from the bridge, does the stone hit the block?

27 Monkey and the Hunter A zookeeper finds an escaped monkey hanging from a 4-meter high tree eating a banana. Aiming her tranquilizer gun at the monkey, the zookeeper kneels and aims 21.8° from the ground, 10 meters from the tree. The monkey thinks he is smart; as soon as the zookeeper fires her gun, the monkey releases from the tree. If the tranquilizer dart travels at 50.0m/s, will the zookeeper hit the monkey?
