Honors Physics Work Sheet Projectile Motion D 1.  A quarterback playing Australian Football passes a football—at a velocity of 15.2m/s at an angle of 40° to the horizontal—toward an intended receiver 27 m downfield. The pass is released 1.5m above the ground. Assume that the receiver is stationary and that he will catch the ball if it comes to him. Will the pass be completed? If not, will the throw be long or short? the pass is short 2. A bicyclist is riding along a level dirt path when he comes to a ditch that is 3.50 m wide. The far side of the ditch is 1.10 m lower than side he is on. His velocity is 9.00 m/s. a. Will he make it over the ditch, or land in the ditch? b. What is the minimum velocity the bicyclist can have to clear the ditch? 3.  The hole on a level, elevated golf green is a horizontal distance of 150 m from the tee and at an elevation of 12.0 m above the tee. A golfer hits a ball at an angle 10.0° greater than that of the hole

Unformatted text preview: above the tee and makes a hole in one! (a) Sketch the situation. (b) What was the initial speed of the ball? (c) Suppose the next golfer hits her ball toward the hole at the same speed, but at an angle of 10.5° greater than that of the hole above the tee. Does the ball go in the hole, or is the shot too long or too short? (b) (c) too long 4. A cannon fires a cannon ball at a velocity of 250 m/s. a. What is the range of the cannon if it fires this projectile at an angle of 22 o (4400m) b. At what angle should the cannon be placed to achieve a range of 6,20m? (38 o ) 5. A motorcycle jumps off of a ramp at 38m/s. The ramp has an elevation of 5.0 m and is angled at 25 o . a. What horizontal distance will the motorcycle travel before touching the ground? (122m) b. What is the maximum height of the cycle relative to the ground? (18m)...

    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.

    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.
