Homework #8 Solutions 1)The trick here is to figure out how long the ball will take to fall 1.3 meters from the top  of the table to the top of the coffee can (1.5 meters – 0.3 meters = 1.3 meters).  Knowing the travel time, you can figure out how far the ball will travel horizontally if  it is moving at a constant 4 m/s horizontal velocity, and that's where you'll put your  coffee can: (vertical distance fallen) =  ½  a t 2 (1.3 m) =  ½  (9.8 m/s 2 ) (t 2 ) t = 0.51 seconds So the ball will take 0.51 seconds to fall to the can; in order to hit the can,  the can must be placed D = VT D = (4 m/s) (0.51s) = 2.06 meters away. 2)This question is similar to the last one, except here we are trying to find the necessary  horizontal velocity to hit the target.  First, we'll find the time required to fall the 80  meters: (distance fallen) =  ½  a t 2 (80 m) =   ½  (9.8 m/s

    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.
