Physics

The ball is thrown from a height of 2m at initial speed of 15 m/s and the starting direction forms a 35 degree angle. 

a) What is the ball's flight time when it hits the ground?

b) maximum height of the ball?

c) air travel time?

a) Balls flight time when it hit the ground.

sin θ = vy / vi

vy = vi (sin θ)

vy = 15 m/s (sin 35°)

vy = 8.6 m/s

 

vf = vy - gt

0 = 8.6 m/s - (9.8 m/s2)(t1)

t1 = 0.88 s

 

hmax = 1/2 gt22

t2 = (2hmax / g)0.5

t2 = ((2 x 5.78 m) / 9.8 m/s2)0.5

t2 = 1.09 s

 

tT = t1 + t2

tT = 0.88 s + 1.09 s

tT = 1.96 s <--- Answer

 

b) Maximum height of the ball.

vf2 = vy2 - 2gh

0 = (8.6 m/s)2 - (2)(9.8 m/s2)h

(19.6 m/s2)h = 74.02 m2/s2

h = 3.78 m

hmax = 3.78 m + 2 m

hmax = 5.78 m <--- Answer

 

c) Air travel time.

tT = 1.96 s <--- Answer
