Unformatted text preview: Understand projectile motion. Know to calculate major parameters of its motion. For example: How long it takes to get to top of trajectory, the range at a given angle, the maximum height at a given initial velocity, etc. 11) Be able to perform variations of the homework problems. Examples of Problem Variations. Problem 2.44 (Original) – It is possible to shoot an arrow at a speed as high as 100 m/s. If friction is neglected, how high would an arrow launched at this speed rise if shot straight up? Problem 2.44 (Variation 1) – It is possible to shoot an arrow at a high speed. If friction is neglected, at what speed would an arrow need to be shot straight up if it rises to 500 m? Problem 2.44 (Variation 2) – You observe an arrow is shot straight up at a speed of 100 m/s and that it rises to 350 m. If friction is neglected, is the measured height consistent with the initial launch speed? 12) Do more problems than were assigned – you need practice....
