Unformatted text preview: Section 3.5 Projectile Motion 39. 40. 41. 42. 43. You toss an apple horizontally at 8.7 m/s from a height of 2.6 m. Simultaneously, you drop a peach from the same height. How long does each take to reach the ground? A carpenter tosses a shingle off an 8.8—m—high roof, giving it an initially horizontal velocity of 11 m/s. (a) How long does it take the shingle to reach the ground? (b) How far does it move hori— zontally in this time? An arrow fired horizonmlly at 41 mls travels 23 m horizontally before it hits the ground. From what height was it fired? Ink droplets in an ink-jet printer are ejected horizontally at 12 mfs and travel a horizontal distance of 1.0 mm to the paper. How far do they fall in this interval? Protons in a particle accelerator drop 1.2 ,um over the 1.7—krn length of the accelerator. What is their approximate average speed? If you can hit a golf ball 180 m on Earth, how far can you hit it on the Moon? (Your answer is an underestimate because the distance on Earth is restricted by air resishance as well as by a larger 3.) Se’étion 3. 6 Uniform Circular Motion t45' 46. 47. How fast would a car have to round a turn with a radius of 75 m for its acceleration to be numerically equal to that of gravity? Estimate the acceleration of the Moon, which completes a nearly circular orbit of 385,000 km radius in 27 days. Global Positioning System satellites are at altitudes of approxie mately 20,000 km, where the acceleration of gravity is only 5.8% of its surface value. To the nearest hour, what’s the orbital period of the GPS satellites? Problems 48. 49. 50 W1 52. \53‘ 54. Two vectors A and B” have the same magnitude A and are at right angles. Find the magnitude of the vectors (a) A + 23 and (b) 3A 15‘ Vector A has magnitude 1.0 m and points at 35° clockwise from the x axis. Vector B has magnitude 1 S In What angle Should B make with the x axis so that A + B is purely vertical? Let A —152—40] and B— —3l]+18k Find a vector C such that A "1* B + C: 0. A biologist studying the motion of bacteria notes a bacterium at position r1: 2_. 21+ 3. 7j-1 .216 um(1,u.m=106m).After6.2 s the bacterium is at 13— 4 6i + 1_ ._9_k pm. What is its average ve locity? Express the ahSwer in unit vectdr notation and calculate the magnitude An object’s position as a function of time is given by F = 1215+ (15t— 5.013)} m, where t is time in seconds. (a) What is the object’s position at 1‘: 2.0 s? (b) What is its average veloc- ity in the interval from t = 0 to I: 2.0 s? (c) What is its instanta- neous velocity at I = 2.0 s? Attempting to stop on a slippery road, a car moving at 80 kmfh skids across the road at a 30° angle to its inititd motion, coming to a stop in 3.9 3. Determine the average acceleration in mst, using a coordinate system with the x axis in the direction of the car’s original motion and the y axis toward the side of the road to which the car skids. An object undergoes acceleration of 233-1- 36} mls2 over a 10-5 interval. At the end of this time, its velocity is 33i+15fmfs. (a) What was its velocity at the beginning of the 10-3 interval? (b) By how much did its speed change? (c) By how much did its direction change? (d) Show that the speed change is not given by the magnitude of the acceleration multiplied by the time. Why not? 55. 56. 57. 58. 59. 60. 61. 62. 63. Exercises and Problems 47 The sweep-second hand of a clock is 3.1 cm long. What are the magnitude of (a) the average velocity and (b) the average accelerw ation of the hand’s tip over a 50—5 interval? (c) What is the angle between the average velocity and acceleration vectors? A ferryboat sails between two towns directly opposite each other on a river. If the boat sails at 15 km/h relative to the water, and if the current flows at 6.3 krnlh at what angle should the boat head? The sum, A + B, of two vectors is perpendicular to the difference A B How do the magnitudes of the two vectors compare? Write an expression for a unit vector that lies at 45° between the positive .76 and y axes. An object is moving initially in the x direction at 4.5 m/s, when an acceleration is applied in the y direction for a period of 18 5. If the object moves equal distances in the x and y directions during this time, what is the magnitude of its acceleration? A particle leaves the origin with initial velocity in = 113+ 14} m/s. It undergoes a constant acceleration given by a = 71.23+0.26j this? (a) When does the particle cross the y axis? (b) What is its y coordinate at the time? (c) How fast is it moving, and in what direction, at that time? A kid fires water horizontally from a squirt gun held 1.6 m above the ground. It hits another kid 2.1 m away square in the back, at a point 0.93 m above the ground. What was the initial speed of the water? In a chase scene, a movie Stuntman is supposed to run right off the flat roof of one city building and land on another roof 1.9 m lower. If the gap between the buildings is 4.5 In wide, how fast must he run? Standing on the ground 3.0 m from the wall of a building, you want to throw a package from your 1.5—m shoulder level to some one in a second-floor window 4.2 In above the ground. At what speed and angle should you throw the package so it just barely . reaches the window? 6\ Derive a general formula for the horizontal distance covered by a 65. 66. 67. 68. 69. 70. proy ectile launched horizontally at speed v0 from height h. Compare the travel times for the projectiles launched at 30° and 60" in Fig. 3.19, both of which have the same starting and ending points. You toss a chocolate bar to your hiking companion located 8.6 m up a 39U slope, as shown in Fig. 3.23. Determine the initial veloc~ ity vector so that the chocolate bar will reach your friend moving horizontally. Elfillllflli Problem 66 Prove that a projectile launched on level ground reaches its max- imum height midway along its trajectory. A projectile launched at an angle 0 to the horizontal reaches a maximum height it. Show that its horizontal range is 4h/tan 0. A motorcyclist driving in a 60 lcmlh zone hits a stopped car on a level road. The cyclist is thrown from his bike and lands 39 In down the road. Was the cyclist speeding? To answer, find the min- imum Speed he could have been going just before the accident. Show that, for a given initial speed, the horizontal range of a pro— jectile is the same for launch angles 45" + a: and 45° 7 a, where a is between 0° and 45°. ...

    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.
