Ltd. 4.1 Independence of horizontal and vertical motions (SB p. 148) Q: Q:An aeroplane, flying in a straight line at a constant height of 500 m with a speed of 200 m s –1, drops an object. The object takes a time t to reach the ground and travels a horizontal distance d in doing so. Taking g as 10 m s –2 and ignoring air resistance, what are the values of t and d ? Solution

28 © Manhattan Press (H.K.) Ltd. 4.1 Independence of horizontal and vertical motions (SB p. 148) Solution: For the horizontal motion: Distance (d) = 200  t = 200  10 = 2 000 m When the object is released from the aeroplane, Horizontal component of velocity = Velocity of the aeroplane = 200 m s –1 For the vertical motion of the object: Initial velocity = 0, acceleration = g = 10 m s –2, displacement = 500 m Using 500 = 0 +  10  t 2 t 2 = 100 t = 10 s Return to Text

32 © Manhattan Press (H.K.) Ltd. 4.1 Independence of horizontal and vertical motions (SB p. 154) So far, air resistance has been neglected for projectile motions. In real situations, the trajectory of the projectile is influenced by air resistance in the extent that depends on the mass, shape and size of the objects. Return to Text

33 © Manhattan Press (H.K.) Ltd. Q: Q: An aeroplane flies at a height h with a constant horizontal velocity u so as to fly over a cannon. When the aeroplane is directly over the cannon, a shell was fired to hit the aeroplane. Neglecting air resistance, what is the minimum speed of the shell in order to hit the aeroplane? (g = acceleration due to gravity) 4.1 Independence of horizontal and vertical motions (SB p. 154) Solution

34 © Manhattan Press (H.K.) Ltd. Solution: Solution: Letv = minimum speed of shell,  = angle of projection. The minimum speed is when the shell will hit the aeroplane at the maximum height of the shell trajectory. Since the shell is fired when the aeroplane is directly above it, the horizontal component of velocity of the shell must be the same as the velocity of the aeroplane, i.e. same u. 4.1 Independence of horizontal and vertical motions (SB p. 154)
