August 29 AP physics

In: A stone is thrown horizontally with an initial speed of 10 m/s from a bridge. If air resistance could be ignored, how long would it take the stone to strike the water 80 m below the bridge? 1 s 2 s 4 s 6 s 8 s

Objective: To use 2 dimensions to understand projectile motion.
Success criteria: Be able to solve projectile problems with horizontal initial velocity

Projectile motion

Video: Snowmobile projectile
Preliminary run I noticed: Run 1 Run 2 Run 3

Horizontal and Vertical directions are independent.

Horizontal motion has constant velocity.

Vertical motion is freefall motion.

Divide and conquer! Horizontal Vertical Time crosses the line!

Practice: A ball is kicked with a velocity of 20 m/s at an angle of 45o from horizontal. What is the horizontal and vertical initial velocity?

How high will it go?

How far will it go?

A cannon shoots a cannon ball at 18m/s at an angle of 30o from the horizontal. What is the distance the cannonball goes?

Wiley Coyote slides horizontally off a 100 m cliff at 75 m/s
Wiley Coyote slides horizontally off a 100 m cliff at 75 m/s. How far from the base of the cliff will he land?

A bullet shoots from a gun at 200 m/s at an angle of 55o from the horizontal. How long is it in the air? How high will the bullet go? How far will the bullet travel.

A man jumps from a burning building 30 meters from the ground
A man jumps from a burning building 30 meters from the ground. His initial velocity is 10 m/s at 25o from the vertical. How long did it take him to land? How far away from the building should the firemen hold the net?

A tennis player hits a ball from 10 meters away from the net that just barely clears the .75 meter net. His initial velocity was 20 m/s. What was the angle he hit it with?

A diver jumps off the 10 meter platform with a velocity of 8 m/s at an angle of 55o from the horizontal. What were the horizontal and vertical components of her jump. How long does it take her to hit the water?

Out: A stone is thrown horizontally with an initial speed of 30 m/s from a bridge. Find the stone’s total speed when it enters the water 4 seconds later. 30 m/s 40 m/s 50 m/s 60 m/s 70 m/s
