While installing an antenna on your roof, you lose your footing and slide off the roof. Fortu- nately, you have placed a safety net whose center is positioned at a horizontal distance of 4.15 m, measured from a point directly below the edge of the roofand indeed you land in the cen- ter of the net. If the roof slopes downward at a 26 angle below the horizontal, and your speed as you leave the roof is 3.70 m/s, how high is the edge of the roof above the level of the net? In this case, there is enough information to calculate a numerical value with a single equation : You can use the x-motion information (i.e. the x-displacement) to calculate the time interval of the fall, then use that value to calculate how far the drop was from roof to net. Notice that if you set your tape measure at the point where you leave the roof, your F nal position when hitting the net will be given by ( x , y ). Notice, too, that an angle measured below the horizontal is negative. roof v i.x x i v i.y v i What you know : x y x = 4.15 y = ? v i.x = x v i cos i v i.y = v i sin i v f.x . = v i cos i v f. y = ? a x = a y = 9.80 y t = ?? And: i = 26 v i = 3.70 m/s I. Calculate the time for the fall: Use this equation : x = v i.x ( t ) + ( / 2 ) a x ( t ) 2 Use these knowns: x = 4.15 Solve for: t ( 1.2479 s ) v i.x = x 3.70cos(26) a x = II. Calculate the vertical displacement during the fall: Use this equation : y = v i.y ( t ) + ( / 2 ) a y ( t ) 2 Use these knowns: v i.y = 3.70sin(26) Solve for: y ( 9.65 m ) t = 1.2479 (from part I ) a y = 9.80 The safety e net was 9.65 m below the edge of the roof.

A golfer hits a golf ball eastward from an elevated tee area onto a level fairway below. 1.35 sec- onds after the ball is hit, it reaches its maximum height. The initial angle of the balls motion off the tee is 24.0 above the horizontal. If the tee level is 12.0 m above the level of the fairway, how far east of the tee does the ball hit the fairway? y 1 v i v i.y i v i.x x y 2 x 1 x 2 For the trip from tee to peak height, Then, for the trip from tee to o impact, what you know : what you know : x y x y x 1 = ? y 1 = ? x 2 = ( step IV ) y 2 = 12.0 v i.x = ( step II ) v i.y = ( step I ) v i.x = ( step II ) v i.y = ( step I ) v f.x f = ( step II ) v f y = 0 v f.x f = ( step II ) v f y = ? a x = a y = 9.80 a x = a y = 9.80 t 1 = 1.35 t 2 = ( step III ) And: i = 24 And: i = 24 I. Calculate the initial y-velocity of the ball as it leaves the tee: Use this equation : v f y = v i.y + a y ( t ) Use these knowns: v f y = 0 (peak trajectory is horizontal) Solve for: v i.y ( 13.23 m/s ) a y = 9.80 (known)9....
