Physics Ex-32 Projectile motion is the vectorial sum of two independent velocities, a horizontal component and a vertical component. The horizontal component velocity (V H ) is constant throughout the motion while the vertical component velocity (V V ) equals free fall. The actual or instantaneous velocity at any point along the parabolic path is tangent to the parabola and equal to the vectorial sum of the horizontal and vertical component velocities. In solving problems on projectile motion, work out the vertical and horizontal component velocities separately as if they were two separate problems. Click N O T E

Physics Ex-32 Question-1 Two stones, A and B, are used in an experiment. At the same time that stone A is dropped, stone B is thrown down horizontally with a velocity of 25 m/s. For each second of fall, fill in the velocities of both stones, as indicated.

Physics Ex-32 Question-2 Click A stone is dropped from a balcony 20 m high. How long does it take the stone to reach the ground?

Physics Ex-32 Question-3 Click A ball is thrown horizontally from a 20 m high cliff with a velocity of 10 m/s. How far from the base of the cliff does the ball land? NOTE The time it takes the ball to strike the ground is the same time it takes an object to fall freely 20 m. Click Step-1: Calculation of falling time Step-2: Calculation of range Click

Physics Ex-32 Question-4 Click A ball is thrown in the air with a velocity of 20 m/s at an angle of 60 o from the horizontal. Calculate: NOTE The vertical component of the velocity is identical to shooting an object vertically upwards. a) How high it rises (the height).

Physics Ex-32 Question-4 Click A ball is thrown in the air with a velocity of 20 m/s at an angle of 60 o from the horizontal. Calculate: NOTE The horizontal component of the velocity is the same throughout the flight and is thus an average velocity. b) How far it travels (the range). Multiply by 2 to obtain total time.

Physics Ex-32 Question-5 Click A ball is thrown in the air with a velocity of 20 m/s at an angle of 45 o from the horizontal. Calculate: NOTE The vertical component of the velocity is identical to shooting an object vertically upwards. a) How high it rises (the height). Click
