Worksheet 3: Two-dimensional motion I (Projectile motion) Questions 1. Consider a projectile at the top of its trajectory (a) The total speed is v 0 cos θ 0 (vertical component of velocity is zero). (b) The acceleration is vectora = - g ˆ y (c) The accleration is perpendicular to the velocity 2. Consider two footbal trajectories (a) The flight times are equal (they go the same height above the ground). (b) The vertical component of the launch velocity is the same for A and B, because they go the same height into the air. (c) The horizontal component of the launch velocity is greater for B, it goes further in the same amount of time. (d) The launch speed of B is greater parenleftBig | vectorv 0 | = radicalBig v 2 x + v 2 y parenrightBig 3. Identical guns are fired on the Earth and the moon from the same height. (a) True: Since g moon is smaller, it will take more time to travel the same vertical distance: Δ y = - 1 2 gt 2 (b) True: As mentioned before, the bullet on the moon travels longer.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
