Physics 112 - HW #3 Solutions Fall 2005 Page 1 3-16 [Basic Projectile] (a) To find the time of flight t f , we consider the vertical component of the motion. The time t f to fall from a height h = 1.39 m, with zero vertical velocity initially, is t f = 2 h g = 2(0.75 m) 9.8 m/s 2 = 0.391 s (b) The horizontal component of the velocity v x does not change during the motion. v x can be calculated from the horizontal distance traveled d and the time of flight t f v x = d t f = 1.40 m 0.391 s = 3.58 m/s (c) The vertical component of the velocity just before impact is v y = - g t f = - (9.8 m/s 2 )(0.391 s) = - 3.83 m/s (The negative sign indicates that this velocity component points downwards .) The magnitude of the total velocity is then |v|= v x 2 +v y 2 = 5.24 m/s The direction is θ = arctan |v y | |v x | = 47 ° downwards from horizontal
