lets take the feet of the archer to be (0,0)
anonymous
  • anonymous
these are the points i got (0,1.39) (18,8) (45,0) :/
anonymous
  • anonymous
very good..now we need an equation which relates x and y dont we?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeaah
anonymous
  • anonymous
lets say he launches the arrow with a horizontal velocity of v..the vertical velocity initaially is zero
anonymous
  • anonymous
can u tell me the x-coordinate at any point in time?
anonymous
  • anonymous
hmm, i don't know :/ ? im not very good at math.. ha
anonymous
  • anonymous
distance is speed x time..since there is no acceleration in the x-direction, the speed always remains v..so x = vt
anonymous
  • anonymous
understand?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah,, kindaa
anonymous
  • anonymous
similarly, there is a downward acceleration of -10 m/s^2 in the y-direction.. in the presence of accn, we have the distance covered as -0.5at^2, where a=accn since we are starting at y=1.39 m, we remodel y as 1.39 - 0.5at^2, a= 10 therefore y= 1.39 - 5t^2

my teacher said that i would have to use quadratic equation to do this problem thou ..does this lead to that orr? :/
phi
  • phi
I posted an answer to this same question (but a different user posted it) But the problem is I don't believe the height of A. You have it as 8 cm. In the real world, this problem does not make sense. Are you sure about the height?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah, there's a diagram , i forgot what their called .. but next to the bulls eye it says A (8cm)
anonymous
  • anonymous
my teacher also said The distance from the top edge of the archery target to the ground is 1.5 meters
phi
  • phi
The distance from the top edge of the archery target to the ground is 1.5 meters That is very important. Is the picture the same as in the post I just listed?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yess, it is
phi
  • phi
so you use the picture to find the height of A above the ground |dw:1350594969329:dw|
phi
  • phi
In my post I just assumed A was at (18,1.35) however, based on your new info, A is at (18,1.26) so the numbers have to be re-done.
phi
  • phi
I did not explain where the equations come from (it's physics), so it is just showing the math
anonymous
  • anonymous
so all i need to do now would be to use the equation ax^2+bx+c ? & then put the #'s in ?
phi
  • phi
did you find my write-up (it's an attachment in the 2nd to last post)
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes got it, you are awesomee! <33 i don't know what i would of donee. haha
anonymous
  • anonymous
where did you get the -4.9 from?
phi
  • phi
I used g= 9.8 m/s^2 in 1/2 g t^2
phi
  • phi
you have to re-do the numbers. And I notice a typo... but it all changes anyway...
anonymous
  • anonymous
is the 1.035 the mistake?
phi
  • phi
yes, that should have been 1.35 but now it should be 1.26
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeahh :) 18tanθ + 0.04 where did the 0.04 come from?
anonymous
  • anonymous
nevermind, i know now (:
phi
  • phi
let me know what you get, and I'll double check it.
anonymous
  • anonymous
what does that zero thing mean after tan ? −18tanθ
phi
  • phi
which equation number are you looking at?
anonymous
  • anonymous
0 =−18tanθ − 0.04 /18^2 45^2 + 45tanθ +1.39
phi
  • phi
I used the point (45,0) in the equation (the arrow hits the ground y=0 45 meters away from the archer x=45 so that 0 is y
phi
  • phi
I labeled this equation (6) so you can refer to it.
anonymous
  • anonymous
i mean like how did you get this - tanθ =19/1125 = 0.0168
phi
  • phi
solve for tanθ it is a bit messy, and I did not bother to write it all down. It is algebra. You do know algebra :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
haha yeah, wasnt the best at it but i know what tan is ..so i would type in my calculator -18tan ___? what goes in the blank thou :/
phi
  • phi
are you working with the new numbers, or just working through the numbers in this old post?
anonymous
  • anonymous
new numbers, haha
phi
  • phi
what equation do you have now?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i have 0 = 18tan - 0.13 / 18^2? :/
phi
  • phi
what about the rest? I would expect to see \[ y= \frac{18 \tan(\theta)-0.13}{18^2}x^2 + x \tan(\theta)+1.39\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeaah i have it, i forgot to say that
anonymous
  • anonymous
i actually have for the rest 45^2 + 45 tan + 1.39
phi
  • phi
yes, after you sub in (45,0) you get \[ 0= \frac{18\tan(\theta)-0.13}{18^2}45^2+45 \tan(\theta)+1.39\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah :) but then i get confused after that bit because i dont know how you got 19/1125
phi
  • phi
get out a piece of paper and use the distributive property and re-write the equation \[ 0= \frac{-45^2\tan(\theta)}{18} -\frac{0.13}{18^2}45^2+45 \tan(\theta)+1.39\] I divided everything by 45: \[ 0= -\frac{45}{18}\tan(\theta) -\frac{0.13}{18^2}45+ \tan(\theta)+\frac{1.39}{45}\] the 45/18 simplifies to 5/2. I moved the tan terms together \[ 0= (1-\frac{5}{2})\tan(\theta) -\frac{0.13}{18}\cdot \frac{5}{2}+\frac{1.39}{45}\] you can finish I hope
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes, thank you soo soo much for the help :)
phi
  • phi
post your results. I'll check back laster.
anonymous
  • anonymous
will do :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Has anyone figured this out?
anonymous
  • anonymous
not yet, still trying to figure it out :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
i figure out that it would be 0.0128333 ..so y = ____x^2 + 0.0128333+1.39 but i can't figure out what the other # is :/
phi
  • phi
how did you get 0.01283... ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
from 0=(1-5/2)tan - 0.13/18 x 5/2 + 1.39/45 :/
phi
  • phi
you start with \[ 0= (1-\frac{5}{2})\tan(\theta) -\frac{0.13}{18}\cdot \frac{5}{2}+\frac{1.39}{45}\] 1-5/2 is 2/2 -5/2= -3/2 \[0=-\frac{3}{2}\tan(\theta) -\frac{0.13}{18}\cdot \frac{5}{2}+\frac{1.39}{45}\] or \[\frac{3}{2}\tan(\theta) = -\frac{0.13}{18}\cdot \frac{5}{2}+\frac{1.39}{45}\] the stuff on the right simplifies to 77/6000 (which is 0.01283...) \[\frac{3}{2}\tan(\theta) = \frac{77}{6000} \] and \[\tan(\theta) = \frac{77}{6000}\cdot \frac{2}{3}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
so 0.085
phi
  • phi
so tanθ = 77/9000 = 0.008555... that is your coefficient on x you can find the coefficient of the x^2 term by replacing tanθ
phi
  • phi
I think you missed a decimal place
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah, haha ..sorry 0.0085 ..so i would use that & the number i said up there^^?
phi
  • phi
\[ y= \frac{-18 \tan(\theta)-0.13}{18^2}x^2 + x \tan(\theta)+1.39 \] you need to find the coeff for the x^2 term. but you know tan so you can simplify
anonymous
  • anonymous
i just got kinda confused :(
phi
  • phi
Yes, this is a complicated problem, and you have to be methodical. If you look at my pdf, we got to equation (5). Then we sub in (45,0) and solved for tan= 77/9000 now you can replace tanθ in equation (5): \[ y= \frac{-18 \tan(\theta)-0.13}{18^2}x^2 + x \tan(\theta)+1.39 \] you will get a parabola with numbers for coefficients
phi
  • phi
just get out your calculator or type it in google: (-18*77/9000 -0.13)/(18^2)=
anonymous
  • anonymous
-0009765
phi
  • phi
oooh, Detroit swept the Yankees 4 games to 0. Detroit is off to the World Series
anonymous
  • anonymous
haha, i dont watch that ..but woo for them! :D
phi
  • phi
you have to be more careful. put in a decimal point, and it is not 9 for the first digit
anonymous
  • anonymous
8 i meaan (:
anonymous
  • anonymous
i mean -0.0008765
phi
  • phi
so now you have the full equation.
anonymous
  • anonymous
yay ..so do i use the 0.0085 & that?:)
phi
  • phi
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
omg, i would of never done this without you
phi
  • phi
you still have to find the max height of y
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeahh , so i did that next step ..which i got -3.725
phi
  • phi
The next step is to find x where the parabola peaks. The way the problem is set up, the archer is at x=0 and the target at x=18 x= -3.7.. is behind the archer. So maybe you got the wrong sign?
phi
  • phi
How did you find x?
anonymous
  • anonymous
how did i get -3.725? :/
phi
  • phi
if you have y = ax^2 +bx+c you should use x_max= -b/(2a)
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes i used -b/2a to get the answer -3.7
anonymous
  • anonymous
25
phi
  • phi
maybe you should type out the equation y = -0.0008765 x^2 + 0.0085 x + 1.39
anonymous
  • anonymous
yess, i wrote that down on my paper :) haha
anonymous
  • anonymous
but i had it the wrong way around :/ oh
phi
  • phi
yes, I notice you are not careful enough.
anonymous
  • anonymous
im confused on what to do next
phi
  • phi
y = -0.0008765 x^2 + 0.0085 x + 1.39 type in google - 0.0085/(2*-0.0008765)=
anonymous
  • anonymous
4.8488
phi
  • phi
much better. that is the x value where the parabola peaks. what is the y value at that x value?
phi
  • phi
type this in google -0.0008765*4.8488^2 + 0.0085*4.8488 + 1.39=
anonymous
  • anonymous
1.41
