The line of sight from A to B makes an angle of 50° with the horizontal. Compute the initial velocity u of the rock Figure 2/1 2. The pilot of an airplane pulls into a steep 45° climb at 300 km/h and releases a package at position A. Calculate the horizontal distance s and the time t from the point of release to the point at which the package strikes the ground. Figure 2/2 3. The wheel and attached pulley rotate about the fixed shaft at O and are driven by the belt as shown. At a certain instant the velocity and acceleration of point A on the belt are 2 ft/sec and 6 ft/sec 2 respectively, both in the direction shown. Calculate the magnitude of the total acceleration of point B on the wheel for this instant. Observe that the linear motion of point A on the belt and the tangential motion of a point on the 4 in. radius motion of point A on the belt and the tangential motion of a point on the 4 in....
