The baby cannon on the lecture bench is aimed to shoot at some angle ! above the horizontal. Since it is on wheels, it will recoil freely when it fires the tennis ball. Viewed from your seat, what angle above the horizontal does the tennis ball’s trajectory make as it emerges from the cannon’s muzzle? 1. An angle larger than ! 2. An angle smaller than ! 3. The same angle ! The kinetic energy of an object of mass m and velocity v, K = mv 2 / 2, can be rewritten in terms of momentum, p = m v , becoming K = p 2 / 2 m. At fixed momentum,
