  • 8. A tennis player serves the ball horizontally with a speed of 20 ms -1 and at a height of 2.8 m. The net is 1 m high and 12 m away. Will the ball clear the net and if so by how much?

  • 9. A man throws a ball horizontally from the top of a hill 4.9 m high. He wants the ball to clear a fence 2.4 m high standing on horizontal ground and 8 m horizontally away from the point of projection. Find the minimum speed at which the ball must be thrown. If the ball is thrown with this minimum speed find how far beyond the fence that it lands.

    • 10. Shells are fired from a gun at 210 ms -1 . What is the maximum range of the shells on horizontal ground?

    • 11. (i) Freddie hits a cricket ball at an initial speed of 25 ms -1 and an angle of 50to the horizontal. Find the greatest height reached by the ball. (ii) The pavilion is 50 m away from Freddie and is 10 m high. Will the ball clear the pavilion?
