23.8, Projectile and tubo
[A projectile is fred horizontally with speed vy ftom the top of a lif of hoight A. It
immediately enters o fixed tbe with length x, as shown in Fig. 3.10. There is frction

tube, itundergoes normal projectile motion dawn tothe grouns,

From the standard 1? = 1} +2ad formula, the speed of the projectile when it exits
the tube is v = iF —Zav. You can also obtain this by using v = 1» —at, where f
is found by solving vot — af? /2 = x. This quadratic equation has two solutions, of,
course. You want the “—" root. (What is the meaning of the “+” root?)
Since the projectile motion has zero initial vy. the time to reach the ground is given
by gi?/2 = => 1 = JTi/eg. The horizontal distance traveled in the air is vt, but
wwe must add on the length of the tube to get the total distance £. So we have
Locking at the two terms in Eq. (3.24), we see that we have competing effects of
4. Increasing x increases ¢ by having the projectile motion stat farther to the right.
But increasing x also decreases the projectile motion’s initial speed and hence its
horizontal distance. Maximizing the ¢ in Eg. (3.24) by taking the derivative with
respect to x gives

Both terms here correctly have dimensions of length. This result for the optimal
value of is smaller than v/24, as it should be, because otherwise the projectile
