PHYSICS HONORS CH. 3 TEST: TWO-DIMENSIONAL KINEMATICS version 1 Show your work. Use scientific notation for answers larger than 100 and less than 0.10. Include magnitude and direction for all vectors.

After twenty seconds of acceleration, the missile's displacement is 12.0 km [W20ºS]. 1) In what direction is the missile moving after the twenty-second acceleration? A gun is set up at the base of a plateau that is 200 m high, as shown at right. The gun fires a projectile with an initial velocity of 150 m/s [N35ºU]. The projectile lands on top of the plateau. 2) What is the range of the projectile? A jetliner is moving at 250 m/s [E30ºS] relative to the air. Because of high altitude winds, a radar station on the ground measures the jetliner’s velocity to be 180 m/s [E]. 3) What is the speed of the wind? A boy is playing with a toy airplane attached to a string. At time t = 0 s, the toy plane is moving at 3.0 m/s [N]. At time t = 0.15 s, the plane is moving at 3.0 m/s [N40ºE]. 4) What was the magnitude of the average acceleration of the plane during this time? A river flows south at 1.20 m/s. Starting on the east bank of the river, a girl swims at 1.40 m/s [W30°N] relative to the water. The girl reaches the opposite shore in one minute. 5) How far downstream does she travel as she crosses the river? A cannon is set up near the edge of a wide, deep canyon, as shown at right. The cannon fires a projectile at an initial velocity of 57 m/s [R46ºU] that strikes the far wall of the canyon. 6) At what speed does the projectile strike the canyon wall? A battleship simultaneously fires two shells toward two enemy ships, one close by ( A ), one far away ( B ). The shells leave the battleship at different angles and travel along the parabolic trajectories shown at right. 7)
