Aruliah (UOIT) Nonlinear Equations MATH 2070U 2 / 23 Applications Zerofinding Iterative methods Example: Range of a cannonball To what elevation should the cannon be raised to hit the target? d V y x Parameters: g = acceleration of gravity ( ms 2 ) : known V = initial speed ( ms 1 ) : known d = distance to target ( m ) : known = required elevation (radians): unknown Determine elevation needed to hit target using known values of parameters V , d , and g c D. Aruliah (UOIT) Nonlinear Equations MATH 2070U 4 / 23 Applications Zerofinding Iterative methods Example: Range of a cannonball Coordinates of cannonball at time t are ( x ( t ) , y ( t )) Motion of cannonball determined by Newtons 2nd law x 00 ( t ) = 0, x ( ) = 0, x ( ) = V cos y 00 ( t ) = g , y ( ) = 0, y ( ) = V sin ODE system integrates directly to yield x ( t ) = ( V cos ) t y ( t ) = ( V sin ) t 1 2 gt 2 c D. Aruliah (UOIT) Nonlinear Equations MATH 2070U 5 / 23 Applications Zerofinding Iterative methods Example: Range of a cannonball Want to find time T such that x ( T ) = d and y ( T ) = If y ( T ) = 0, then T = 0 or T = 2 V sin g Reject T = 0, so we must have x ( T ) = ( V cos ) 2 V sin g = d Zerofinding problem: find elevation * such that f ( * ) = 0, where f ( ) : = 2 sin cos  dg V 2 c D.
