Projectile Motion

2
Projectile: An Object Moving Solely Under Influence of Gravity

3
Horizontally Launched Projectile

4
Projectile Motion

5
Projectile Velocities

6
Net Force in Freefall Horizontal Motion Vertical Motion Net Force NO YES – force of gravity – downward Acceleration NO YES – “g” is downward at about 10 m/s/s Velocity Constant Changing by about 10 m/s each second

Monkey Zookeeper

11
Monkey – Zookeeper – No Gravity

12
Monkey Zookeeper - Fast

13
Monkey – Zookeeper - Slow

14
Projectile Trajectories Complementary angles have equal ranges

15
Satellite Motion l If superman threw a rock fast enough … it would orbit the earth (if there were no air resistance

16
Satellite = Fast Projectile l Since the earth’s surface curves away from the horizontal by 5 m for every 8000 m tangent to the surface l V = 8000 m/s = 8 km/s

17
Satellite Periods l For a satellite close to the Earth, the period (the time for a complete orbit about the Earth) is about 90 minutes. l For higher altitudes, the orbital speed is less, distance is more, and the period is longer. l For example, communication satellites located in orbit 5.5 Earth radii above the surface of the Earth have a period of 24 hours.
