1 x y v 0 d University of California, Berkeley Physics 8A, Fall 2010 ( Xiaosheng Huang ) Midterm 1 Wednesday, 10/6/2010 6:00 - 8:00 PM Note : You are allowed one formula sheet ( 8 ½ ” by 11”, single sided ) . No calculators or any other electronic devices are permitted. Show all work, and take particular care to explain what you are doing. Please use the symbols described in the problems, define any new symbols that you introduce, and label any drawings that you make. Throughout this exam, the magnitude of the earth gravitational acceleration is g (>0). 1) (22 pts.) A cannonball is fired horizontally from the edge of a cliff, and the ball is fired with initial horizontal velocity v 0 = v 0 i , where i is the unit vector in the direction of the positive x -axis. Assume that the cannon is fired at time t = 0. a) Given that the projectile lands at a distance d from the cliff, as shown in the figure, find the height of the canon, H , in terms of d , v 0 and g . b) Suppose the cannonball hits the ground at time t g . Find its y position at t = t g /2 as a fraction of H . That is, express your answer in terms of H .

### What students are saying

• 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.
