QUESTION 2
A projectile is projected from the origin with a velocity of 15.0 m/s at an angle of 30.0
degrees above the horizontal. What is the location of the projectile 2.00 seconds later? X=26
y=-4.6

X = 46.0 m, Y = 4.60 m
X = -36.0 m, Y = -4.60 m
X = -26.0 m, Y = -26.0 m
X = 4.60 m, Y = 9.60 m
X = 26.0 m, Y = -4.60 m

## A basketball is launched with an initial

speed of 8.5 m/s and follows the trajectory
shown. The ball enters the basket 0.92 s after it
is launched. What are the
distances x and y? x=6y=0.88Note: The drawing is
not to scale.

x = 6.0 m, y = 0.88 m
x = 6.3 m, y = 0.96 m
x = 7.6 m, y = 1.1 m

x = 5.7 m, y = 0.91 m
x = 5.4 m, y = 0.73 m

The lob in tennis is an effective tactic when your opponent is near the net. It consists
of lofting the ball over his head, forcing him to move quickly away from the net (see the
drawing). Suppose that you loft the ball with an initial speed of 15.0 m/s, at an angle of
50.0 above the horizontal. At this instant your opponent is 10.0 m away from the ball. He
begins moving away from you 0.30 s later, hoping to reach the ball and hit it back at the
moment that it is 2.10 m above its launch point. With what minimum average speed must
he move? 5.79 (Ignore the fact that he can stretch, so that his racket can reach the ball
before he does.)

6.79 m/s
5.79 m/s

QUESTION 6
. A projectile is projected from the origin with a velocity of 10.0 m/s at an angle of
30.0 degrees above the horizontal. What is the velocity of the projectile 2.00 seconds
later? X=8.7 y=-14.6

## Vx = 5.6 m/s, Vy = -14.6 m/s

Vx = 14.6 m/s, Vy = -5.6 m/s
Vx = -14.6 m/s, Vy = 8.7 m/s
Vx = -8.7 m/s, Vy = -14.6 m/s
Vx = 8.7 m/s, Vy = -14.6 m/s

QUESTION 7
A shell is fired with a horizontal velocity in the
positive x direction from the top of an 80-m high cliff.
The shell strikes the ground 1330 m from the base of the
cliff. The drawing is not to scale. Determine the initial speed
of the shell.330

A projectile is projected from the origin with a velocity of 20.0 m/s at an angle of 30.0
degrees above the horizontal. The projectile lands on a roof that is 4.00 m height. What is
the velocity vector when the projectile hits the roof? Vx = 17.3 m/s, Vy = -13.4 m/s
Vx = 17.3 m/s, Vy = +13.4 m/s
Vx = 15.2 m/s, Vy = -13.4 m/s
Vx = 17.3 m/s, Vy = -13.4 m/s
Vx = 14.3 m/s, Vy = -3.23 m/s
Vx = 16.8 m/s, Vy = -3.95 m/s

QUESTION 10
A projectile is projected from the origin with a velocity of 30.0 m/s at an angle of 45.0
degrees above the horizontal. What is the velocity and time when the projectile hits the
ground? Vx = 21.2 m/s, Vy = -21.2 m/s at t = 4.33 s

## Vx = 16.7 m/s, Vy = -21.2 m/s at t = 4.33 s

Vx = 21.2 m/s, Vy = -21.2 m/s at t = 4.33 s
Vx = 21.1 m/s, Vy = -16.7 m/s at t = 2.83 s
Vx = 21.2 m/s, Vy = -15.0 m/s at t = 3.33 s
Vx = 16.7 m/s, Vy = -16.7 m/s at t = 3.33 s
