he throws the ball horizontally 3 ft above the ground, how far from first base will it hit the ground? (b) From
the same initial height, at what upward angle must the third baseman throw the ball if the first baseman is to
catch it 3 ft above the ground? (c) What will be the time of flight in that case?

v0= v0xi+ v0yj relative to the sled. When the ball lands, its horizontal displacement ∆xbg relative to the ground
(from its launch position to its landing position) is measured. The figure gives ∆xbg as a function of vs.
Assume it lands at approximately its launch height. What are the values of (a) v0x and (b) v0y?
The ball’s displacement ∆xbs relative to the sled can also be measured. Assume that the sled’s velocity is not
changed when the ball is shot. What is ∆xbs when vs is (c) 5m/s and (d) 15m/s? ˆ

horizontal and a constant acceleration of 1m/s2, up. (a) Assume t=0 at the instant just described and write
an equation for the elevation y of the hang glider as a function of t, with y=0 at ground level. (b) Use the
equation to determine the value of t when y=0. (c) Explain why there are two solutions to part B. Which one
represents the time it takes the hang glider to reach ground level? (d) how far does the hang glider travel
horizontally during the interval between t=0 and the time it reaches the ground? For the same initial position
and velocity, what constant acceleration will cause the hang glider to reach ground level with zero velocity?

have versus the launch angle θ0 at which it can be launched. The choice of θ0 determines the flight time; let
tmax represent the maximum flight time. What is the least speed the ball will have during its flight if θ0 is
chosen such as that the flight time is 0.5tmax?
