1/5/11 PROBLEM: Motion in 2D Two footballs are thrown from the same point on a flat field. Both are thrown at an angle of 30 degrees above the horizontal . Ball 2 has twice the initial speed of ball 1 . If ball 1 is caught a distance D1 from the thrower, how far away from the thrower D2 will the receiver of ball 2 be when he catches it?

1/5/11 HANG TIME A basketball star covers 2.8 m horizontally in a jump to dunk the ball. His motion through space can be modeled precisely as that of a particle at his center of mass . His center of mass is at elevation 1.02 m when he leaves the floor. It reaches a maximum height of 1.85 m and is at elevation 0.9 m when he touches down again. Determine : (1) his time of flight (his hang time). (2) his horizontal and vertical velocity components at the instant of takeoff. (3) his takeoff angle.

    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.
