Engineering Mechanics - Dynamics Chapter 15 Problem 15-17 When the ball of weight W is fired, it leaves the ground at an angle θ from the horizontal and strikes the ground at the same elevation a distance d away. Determine the impulse given to the ball. Given: W 0.4 lb = d 130 ft = 40 deg = g 32.2 ft s 2 = Solution: Guesses v 0 1 ft s = t 1s = Imp 1lbs = Given v 0 cos () td = 1 2 gt 2 v 0 sin θ t + 0 = Imp W g v 0 = v 0 t Imp Find v 0 t , Imp , () = v 0 65.2 ft s = t 2.6 s = Imp 0.810 lb s
