Kinematics:
Bill stands on the roof of his house, a distance d=13m above the ground, operating a pitching machine. At t = 0 he launches a ball with initial speed v0 at an angle θ above horizontal. The ball hits the ground at the base of his friend Ted’s house, a distance D = 80m away, at exactly tf = 4s. What are v0 and θ ? What is the maximum height H reached by the ball ? How fast vf is the ball moving when it hits the ground ? v0 Bill θ d=13m D=80m
Physics 211: Review, Pg 43

Ted

Kinematics...
The distance traveled in the x direction is: D = v 0 cos θ ⋅ t f (a) The y position of the ball is given by: 1 y = y 0 + v y 0 t − gt 2 2 1 −d = v 0 sin θ ⋅ t f − gt f2 which at t = tf becomes: 2 1 v 0 sin θ ⋅ t f = gt f2 − d (b) 2 dividing (b) by (a):
gt f2 − 2 d tan θ = 2D

Physics 211: Review, Pg 44

Kinematics...
gt f2 − 2 d Plug the given numbers into tan θ = 2D
θ = 39 .3 o

Now put this back into D = v 0 cos θ ⋅ t f and solve for v0:
v0 = D cos θ ⋅ t f
v 0 = 25 .8 m s

Physics 211: Review, Pg 45

Kinematics...
The time at the top of the trajectory tt can be found by solving vy = vy0 - gtt = 0 Plug this into the y-position equation:
h = v 0 sin θ ⋅ t t − 1 2 gt t 2
tt = v y0 g = v 0 sin θ g

Kinematics...
The y-component of the velocity at t = tf can be found by v yf = v 0 sin θ − gt f = −22 .9 m s plugging into vyf = vy0 - gtf The x-component of velocity is constant: v x = v 0 cos θ = 20 m s
