Julie throws a ball to her friend Sarah. The ball leaves Julie's hand a distance 1.5 meters above the ground with an initial speed of 11 m/s at an angle 44 degrees; with respect to the horizontal. Sarah catches the ball 1.5 meters above the ground. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2) What is the vertical component of the ball’s velocity right before Sarah catches it? 3) What is the time the ball is in the air?

I attempted (for question # 2) \(11\sin(44)\approx7.6\)m/s but it doesn't work when I enter it in my pracice thingy.

Looking for something else?

  • dan815
yep okay
dan815
  • dan815
a complete parabollic motion completed in this throw okayq
dan815
  • dan815
so the same vertical speed it started out with is the same speed it ended with
dan815
  • dan815
|dw:1441330388180:dw|
idku
  • idku
Yes, so I tried 11sin(44) but it didn't work....
idku
  • idku
(well, I entered 7.64 approximation)
dan815
  • dan815
its downward now so
dan815
  • dan815
it will be negative -11*sin(44)
idku
  • idku
Oh, cool. Thanks, and how do I figure question #3?
idku
  • idku
3) What is the time the ball is in the air?
dan815
  • dan815
okay now we dont really care about the horizontal component of the veloicty that is not going to determine how long the ball will stay up in the air
dan815
  • dan815
What we need to worry about is the veloicty in Y and the acceleration in Y
dan815
  • dan815
now lets break the problem into 2 symmetric parts, the time it takes the ball to go up, and then the time it takes the ball once its all the way up to fall back down will be the same
dan815
  • dan815
this is something you should prove to yourself when u have time
dan815
  • dan815
so what we will do is figure out the time he takes from |dw:1441330648992:dw|
idku
  • idku
well, considering any vertex of (h,k) the vertical distance from (h,k) to (h,k+a) and the vertical distance from (h,k) to (h,k-a) are same. ik that:)
dan815
  • dan815
okay
dan815
  • dan815
what is the speed at the top of the arc?
dan815
  • dan815
the velocity / speed of the ball
idku
  • idku
I am just very unfamiliar with the formulas I have to apply at each time.
dan815
  • dan815
no formulas needed
idku
  • idku
lol (?)
dan815
  • dan815
what happens to the velocity at the very top
idku
  • idku
it is 0
dan815
  • dan815
right
dan815
  • dan815
so we started with 11sin(44)m/s and went to 0 m/s now acecleration tells you how velocity changes wrt to time\ we have a constant acceleration of 9.8m/s^2 "9.8 m/s /s" we change 9.8m/s(speed) /s(per second)
dan815
  • dan815
so if we went from / 11 sin(44) m/s to 0 m/s how many second would that have took if every second we lose 9.8m/s
idku
  • idku
11sin(44)/9.81 seconds
dan815
  • dan815
good :)
dan815
  • dan815
now that is the time for half the motion right
dan815
  • dan815
so multiply that time by 2 and ur done
idku
  • idku
I am really not that good to do logical conclusions like this on my own though. I think that practicing formulas at first and then comprehending to an extent of a logic would be better for me..... Yes, multiply that by 2, so we got 2sin(44) (m/s) ------------ 9.81 (m/s^2) and our units are seconds as well....
idku
  • idku
times 2, because we go from max vel to 0 velocity twice.
dan815
  • dan815
2 * 11 *sin(44)/9.81
idku
  • idku
1.56 seconds
dan815
  • dan815
probably right
idku
  • idku
Wolfram is always right:D
dan815
  • dan815
:)
idku
  • idku
And how would I briefly go about the distance between the two girls?
dan815
  • dan815
okay so we know the time it was up in the air
dan815
  • dan815
now for that same time, it was constatly moving horizontally with that horizontal speed given 11 cos(44)
idku
  • idku
distance = time 5 velocity ?
idku
  • idku
oh, 5 was supposed to be ×
dan815
  • dan815
yes thats right
dan815
  • dan815
by definition speed is the change in distance per time unit m/s
idku
  • idku
distance = 1.56 • 11cos(44) <-- that is our horizontal velocity ^ | the time for vertical and horizontal is same.....
dan815
  • dan815
yes
idku
  • idku
1.56s • 11cos(44)(m/s) and units work too
idku
  • idku
12.34
dan815
  • dan815
oh btw, you know how to you said youd rather pratice formulas to solve this, you should forget that way of thinking, it might even help you getting marks as far as highschool goes... but you will just be memorizing formulas and not understanding

\[\Delta x = v_{i_x}t + \frac{1}{2}gt^2\] can this work too? just wondering.
idku
  • idku
a=0 in horizontal force
idku
  • idku
because no gravity
dan815
  • dan815
IF you want to do good in college, and get further in physics and other related stuff, you are better of understanding and trying to do this more logically
idku
  • idku
so just v•t
dan815
  • dan815
eventually those people that are memorizing wont be able to solve the tougher problems
idku
  • idku
I am making sense out of it.... my prof is a good person but by no means can he be a teacher ... -:( tnx for helping me with it. I am kind of bad it (comparing to other subjects), but tnx!
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
dan is absolutely right
dan815
  • dan815
dont worry it takes a while to get comfortable in physics
dan815
  • dan815
i had one highschool teacher that gave us good advice, he said make sure you can picture the problem
dan815
  • dan815
always do your best to picture the problems, really understand the question, understanding the questions is sometimes the most difficult part
idku
  • idku
Jhanny it is the teacher, I promise....
idku
  • idku
yes, understanding is best, because it is the only way to put it into memory
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
Many people do not like their physics professors, but its really in understanding what youre learning thats weighing you down, not the professor
idku
  • idku
I will have some more questions, and entire night to work on (waiting for friday 3pm after physics to chill). I have to ask more and do it..... sorry that I am stopping the conversation like this.
idku
  • idku
No, he doesn't explain he just derives formulas from formulas....
idku
  • idku
good luck, bye, apologize.
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
