Unformatted text preview: UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, DAVIS Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering ENG 6, Engineering Problem Solving Spring 2004 Problem Set #2 Due Saturday, April 17 at 5:00 pm (Late submissions will be accepted until Monday, April 19 at 5 pm, for a maximum of half credit.) For the following problems you are to create the specified script files and submit them via the MyUCDavis web portal, as described in the instructions below. IMPORTANT NOTE: It is okay to work together on the homework assignments, but in the end you must write up and submit your own version of the script separately from anyone else. That is, you may not copy and submit someone else’s script or portion thereof, even if you helped work on it. Problem 2.1 Tiger Woods needs to crush a long drive on the 18 th hole to win the Masters. If the ball comes off the clubface at 14 degrees, how much initial velocity in miles per hour must he impart to the ball to get it to travel 325 yards (which includes 15 yards of roll after it lands)? Also calculate the maximum height (in feet) that the ball reaches and how long (in seconds) it’s in the air. (We will ignore any aerodynamic effects from drag and from the spin of the ball, so the ball’s trajectory will be symmetrical.) Prepare a script file to compute and display these quantities. Display the results to one decimal place. Use 32.2 feet per second squared for the acceleration due to gravity. Use comment lines throughout the script to explain your computations. At the top of the script, include three comment lines as follows: %Engineering 6, Spring 2004, Problem 2.1 %Your name and the last four digits of your student ID (e.g., John Smith, 5872) %Your name and the last four digits of your student ID (e....
