Unit 7: Motion II

PRACTICE PROBLEMS

The laws of motion, analyzed through equations regarding motion, affect

the trajectory of a projectile.

YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO EXPLAIN THIS IN DETAIL BY THE END OF THE UNIT

Name____________________________________________________________

Assignment #1: A Look Horizontally & Vertically

A 5 kg cannonball is shot horizontally at 20 m/s off the edge of a cliff and takes 5 seconds to land.

1. Based on the given scenario, fill out the following charts. FIRST write in the velocity and

acceleration values at t = 0 seconds. THEN have your teacher check it before you fill in the rest!

7. Now that you’ve sketched the motion, add velocity vectors in both the x and y directions for each

time slot on your sketch. When you’re done, have it checked!

versus time – one with horizontal data, one with vertical data.

9. a.) What is the meaning of the slope for … ∆dx vs. t? … ∆dy vs. t?

Assignment #2: Two – Dimensions

The horizontal and vertical components of motion are completely independent of each other. So...

we can consider the horizontal motion and vertical motion separately.

a) A ball rolling on a flat table has a horizontal but no vertical component of

motion.

b) A rock falling straight downward with no wind blowing has no horizontal

component of motion.

c) A baseball hit into the air toward right field has vertical but no horizontal

component of motion.

d) A basketball bounced straight up and down has vertical but no horizontal

component of motion.

2. If there was no friction, a ball rolling on a perfectly horizontal floor would never stop unless it

struck something. It would keep on going and going and going even though gravity is still acting

on it. Why won’t gravity stop the rolling ball? [Hint: consider the direction of the ball and the

direction of gravity’s action.]

3. A cannonball is shot horizontally at the exact same time that a bowling ball is dropped. The

bowling ball is dropped from the same height as the cannonball. Consider the horizontal and

vertical parts of the motion separately to answer the following questions.

b) Both balls move vertically. The cannonball and the bowling ball both will hit the ground

sometime. What influences the vertical motion of each ball?

Bowling ball:

Cannonball:

c) The horizontal distance is not the same for each ball, but is the vertical distance? Explain.

d) Both the cannonball and the bowling ball will hit the ground at the same time! Explain why

this is so, using your answers to parts b and c.

5

Assignment #3: Horizontal Projectiles

When a cannonball is shot it travels both horizontally and vertically. Horizontal motion is along the x

axis and vertical motion is along the y axis. We will use x and y labels to distinguish between

horizontal and vertical motion. To describe the distance an object travels horizontally (x) and the

distance an object travels vertically (y) we can use the following two equations.

dx = vxt dy = viyt + ½ayt2 (Reminder: ay = g)

1.2 m

b) Recalling that g equals 9.8 m/s2, find the time (t) that it takes for the cannonball to hit the

ground.

c) Using your answer to part b, calculate the distance that the ball travels in the x direction.

2. A bowling ball is dropped from a height of 1.2m off the ground. How long will it take for the ball

to hit the ground? (Note: the initial velocity in the y direction (vy) is equal to zero because it was

at rest just before it was dropped.)

NOTICE: Your answers to 1b and 2 should be the same and that’s proof that the two different

objects will hit the ground at the same time, regardless of their masses!

6

3. A rock is thrown horizontally at a speed of 4.2 m/s from the top of a cliff 65 m high.

a) What are the initial horizontal and vertical components of the rock’s total velocity?

b) How long does it take the stone to reach the bottom of the cliff?

c) The stone strikes the ground how far from the base of the cliff?

4. Consider the previous question again. Instead of throwing the stone at a speed of 4.2 m/s, let’s

assume that the stone was thrown at twice that speed (still horizontally).

a) How long does it take the stone to reach the bottom of the cliff?

b) The stone strikes the ground how far from the base of the cliff?

c) Use dx = vxt to calculate the horizontal component of the velocity (vx) when it hits the ground.

(Hint: t = your answer to part a; dx = your answer to part b.)

d) Calculate the vertical component of the velocity upon impact. (Recall the equation v f = vi + at.

Again, vi was zero. Part a gives you t and a = g = 9.8 m/s2.)

NOTICE: For 4c you should have gotten the same value as the initial velocity given in the problem.

This shouldn’t be surprising since the velocity is constant in the x direction and there is no force

acting in that direction to either slow or speed up that component.

Assignment #4 A: Horizontally Launched Projectiles

1-D Motion

Answer the following questions. Make a shopping list, select the proper equation, and solve. Make

sure to show all your work with units.

1) How far will a 10 kg block free fall in 2) A boat travels at an average rate of 45 m/s.

2-D Motion

Sample Problem: Sam Duffer hits a golf ball horizontally off a 24 meter high cliff with a speed of

40 m/s. How long is the ball in the air? How far from the base of the cliff will the ball

strike the ground?

Identify given variables in both horizontal and vertical directions, separately!

Identify the unknowns: In this case: Horizontal distance (d x), and time (t)

Horizontal (x) Vertical (y)

vi 0 m/s *the time for both vertical and horizontal are the same*

vf

v̄ 40 m/s

d ? 24 m

a 0 m/s2 9.8 m/s2

t ?

Most problems will require you to solve for time first – it is our “link” between horizontal and vertical!

Determine which direction you know more about.

o Horizontal – You will be solving a constant velocity problem first – using: v̄ x = dx / t

o Vertical – You will be solving a free-fall problem first – using: dy = viyt + ½ ayt2

Substitute and solve for the unknown (time) in one direction (vertical or horizontal) and then solve

for the unknown in the other direction

Vertical: Horizontal:

dy = viyt + ½ ayt2 v̄ x = dx / t

24m = 0m/s(t)+ ½ (9.8m/s2)(t2) 40 m/s = dx / 2.2 s

t = 2.2 s dx = 88.4 m

Run the gizmo Golf Range

In this activity we will explore the physics of projectile motion with and without air. We will use trial and

error to study the path, horizontal and vertical components of a golf ball in flight.

1.) Before you do anything, set the Atmosphere to None! Select “Show Grid.”

2.) Set the initial velocity to any value under 60 m/sec. Experiment with different angles until you find

the angle that makes the ball go the farthest. Record the angle below. “Show Paths” to get all

results!

3.) Professionals can hit the ball at a velocity of around 70 m/s. About how far can these golfers drive

the ball without air resistance?

4.) For THIS QUESTION ONLY, set Atmosphere to Air! About how far can professional golfers drive

the ball with air resistance?

5.) Once again, set the Atmosphere to None! While keeping initial velocity the same, experiment with

different angles until you find the angle that makes the ball go the highest. What is that angle?

6.) Click and drag the hole and move it to any location. Make a hole in one. There are always 2 angles

that will make a hole in one with the same distance and velocity – one angle above 45° and one

angle below 45°. Keeping the exact same velocity, experiment until you find the second angle that

will make the shot. Record the pair of angles below.

7.) Repeat this step for 3 different hole locations, recording the pairs of angles below.

14

8.) Set the simulation to the settings shown in the picture below. Launch the ball at angles of 90, 60,

45, 30, and 10 degrees. Draw and label these paths on the picture.

9.) What angle makes the ball have the biggest “hang time” in the air?

10.) Keeping vinitial at 90 m/sec and Θ at 90 degrees, click on the Show velocity vectors checkbox.

Notice there are two velocity vectors, a blue one to represent velocity in the vertical direction (vy),

and a red vector representing horizontal velocity (vx). Their magnitudes are listed next to the Show

velocity vectors checkbox. What is the horizontal velocity when the ball is hit at 90 degrees?

11.) What happens to the vertical velocity as the ball goes up?

12.) What happens to the vertical velocity as the ball comes down?

13.) Now slide the Angle (deg) tab around. At what angle are the vertical and horizontal components

equal?

14.) Launch the ball at this angle and watch the components carefully. What happens to the horizontal

velocity as the ball goes up? As the ball goes down?

Assignment #8: Angled Projectiles

A projectile is a word that we will use to describe an object that is in motion. A baseball thrown into the

air, a bowling ball rolling, and a bullet fired from a gun—all of these are projectiles. Many projectiles,

such as the baseball, move in an arc-like shape and therefore there is both a horizontal and vertical

part, or component, to their motion.

So far we have considered projectiles that are initially rolling horizontally. Now we will consider those

that are launched at an angle. We will continue to use the two basic equations from the previous

assignments:

Horizontal Distance Vertical Distance

given in the information section to find y (the maximum height).

d) How far did the ball go? (Hint: use the horizontal distance equation. You know v x from part a and

t from part b.)

3. This question is just like the previous one, except without all the hints. A cannonball was fired with

a velocity of 12.4 m/s at an angle of 60o above the horizontal.

a) Calculate the initial vertical (vy) and horizontal (vx) components of the velocity.

4. A football was kicked at 22.5 m/s at an angle of 35o above the horizontal.

a) What was the ball’s hangtime? (This is the total time in the air.)

5. The same kicker kicked the football again at a speed of 22.5 m/s. This time the angle was 45 o

above the horizontal. How far did the ball go?

6. Again, the kicker kicked the football at the same speed, but this time the angle was 55 o. Find the

distance the ball traveled.

7. Given your answers to questions 4-6, if a football kicker wants to kick the ball as far as possible,

what advice could you give him?

October Sky

The movie October Sky is the true story of Homer Hickam, a coal miner’s son in

1950 West Virginia, who was inspired by the first Sputnik launch to take up rocketry

against his father’s wishes. As Homer and his friends experiment with building

rockets, they experience various mishaps and are accused of setting a fire. The

group of young inventors competes for a National Science Award which will provide

them with college scholarships. Homer Hickam went on to become a NASA

engineer.

1. When explaining why his rocket did not set the fire, Homer used the formula, s = ½ at2. [We

usually use a “d” instead of an “s”, so it is d = ½ at2]

This equation can also be written as d = 4.9t2, which is the distance, d, in meters, than an

object falls due to gravity as a function of time, t, in seconds. Explain why, in this case,

4.9 can replace ½ a.

2. Homer states that his rocket fell for 14 seconds and estimates that the rocket’s altitude was

3000 feet.

Find the actual distance, in meters, that the rocket fell during that time.

How does his estimated distance compare to the actual distance that the rocket fell? Be

sure to convert to feet first, showing all work!

3. Using Homer’s estimated altitude of 3000 feet, express the height of the falling rocket as a

function of time since it began falling. Sketch the graph of this new function. Label the graph.

36

The vertical height of a projectile affected only by gravity near the earth’s surface is modeled by a

quadratic function. While the following equations do not take air resistance into account, they are,

nevertheless, good models.

METERS: After t seconds, the height of a projectile with an initial upward velocity of vo meters per

second and an initial height ho meters is given by y = h(t) = -4.9t2 + vot + ho meters.

FEET: When the initial height is measured in feet and the initial velocity is measured in feet per

second, the height of the object is given by y = h(t) = -16t2 + vot + ho feet.

4. According to the National Association of Rocketry, the current model rocket altitude record in the

“F Altitude” event for the ages 14-18 division is 14030 meters. From this record setting altitude,

the rocket is motionless as it begins its free-fall descent back to the ground. Using the equation,

y = h(t) = -4.9t2 + vot + ho, find how long it will take for the rocket to hit the ground after reaching

its highest point (to the nearest tenth of a second).

Hint: motionless implies vo = 0 and hitting the ground implies h(t) = 0

5. You arrive at a model rocket competition only to discover that you left your small solid fuel

engines at home. In a fit of anger, you throw the engine-less rocket into the air. The rocket

leaves your hand 6 feet above the ground with an initial throw velocity of 45 feet per second.

Realizing that you will need the rocket for further competitions, you catch the rocket when it falls

back to a height of 5 feet. For how many seconds was the rocket in the air?

37

38

8. You arrive at another model rocket competition and you have remembered to bring your small solid

fuel engines. Your rocket is launched from rest and the solid fuel engine delivers a constant

acceleration of 8.2 meters per second per second for 5 seconds after which the fuel is used up.

a. Using Homer’s formula, s = ½ at2, find the altitude of the rocket when the engine shuts down. (Hint:

this will be the initial height for part c)

b. Using the formula v = at, find the velocity, in m/s, when the engine shuts down. (Hint: this will be the

initial velocity for part c)

c. Find the amount of time the rocket will remain in the air after the engine shuts down.

d. Find the TOTAL time the rocket is in the air, including the engine burn.

e. Find the maximum altitude of this flight. Use your knowledge of parabolas (axis of symmetry) or a

graphing calculator.

Weightless Wonder – Reduced Gravity Flight

(from www.nasa.gov)

Background

Exploration provides the foundation of our knowledge, technology, resources, and inspiration. It seeks answers

to fundamental questions about our existence, responds to recent discoveries and puts in place revolutionary

techniques and capabilities to inspire our nation, the world, and the next generation. Through NASA, we touch

the unknown, we learn and we understand. As we take our first steps toward sustaining a human presence in the

solar system, we can look forward to far-off visions of the past becoming realities of the future.

The vision for space exploration includes returning the space shuttle safely to flight, completing the International

Space Station, developing a new exploration vehicle and all the systems needed for embarking on extended

missions to the Moon, Mars, and beyond.

In our quest to explore, humans will have to adapt to functioning in a variety of gravitational environments. Earth,

Moon, Mars, and space all have different gravitational characteristics. Earth’s gravitational force is referred to as

one Earth gravity, or 1g. Since the Moon has less mass than the Earth, its gravitational force is only one sixth

that of Earth, or 0.17g. The gravitational force on Mars is equivalent to about 38% of Earth’s gravity, or 0.38g.

The gravitational force in space is called microgravity and is very close to zero-g.

When astronauts are in orbit, either in the space shuttle or on the International Space Station (ISS), Earth’s

gravitational force is still working on them. However, astronauts maintain a feeling of weightlessness, since both

the vehicle and crew members are in a constant state of free-fall. Even though they are falling towards the Earth,

they are traveling fast enough around the Earth to stay in orbit. During orbit, the gravitational force on the

astronauts relative to the vehicle is close to zero-g.

Figure 1: C-9 jet going into a parabolic maneuver. Figure 2: Astronaut crew training onboard the C-9 aircraft in

preparation for the Microgravity Science Laboratory missions

flown on the Space Shuttle Columbia in April and July of 1997.

The C-9 jet is one of the tools utilized by NASA to simulate the gravity, or reduced gravity, astronauts feel once

they leave Earth (Figure 1). The C-9 jet flies a special parabolic pattern that creates several brief periods of

reduced gravity. A typical NASA C-9 flight travels over the Gulf of Mexico, lasts about two hours, and completes

between 40 and 60 parabolas. These reduced gravity flights are performed so astronauts, as well as researchers

and their experiments, can experience the gravitational forces of Moon and Mars and the microgravity of space.

By using the C-9 jet as a reduced gravity research laboratory, astronauts can simulate different stages of

spaceflight. This can allow crew members to practice what might occur during a real mission. These reduced

gravity flights provide the capability for the development and verification of space hardware, scientific

experiments, and other types of research (Figure 2). NASA scientists can also use these flights for crew training,

including exercising in reduced gravity, administering medical care, performing experiments, and many other

aspects of spaceflight that will be necessary for an exploration mission. A flight on the C-9 jet is the next best

thing to blasting into orbit!

Problem

To prepare for an upcoming mission, an astronaut participated in a C-9 flight simulating microgravity. The pilot

flew out over the Gulf of Mexico, dove down to increase to a maximum speed then climbed up until the nose was

at a 45° angle with the ground. At this point the velocity of the plane was 444 kilometers per hour (about 275

mph) and the altitude was 9,144 meters (about 30,000 ft). To go into a parabolic maneuver, the pilot then cut the

thrust of the engine letting the nose of the plane continue to rise then come back down at a -45° angle with the

ground. Ending the parabolic maneuver, the pilot throttled the engine back up and began another dive to prepare

for the next parabola. The pilot completed 50 parabolas during the 2 hour flight.

Figure 3 (on the following page) shows the movement of the plane during a typical flight. The parabolic

maneuver, where microgravity is felt, is highlighted.

For this problem we will be ignoring other influences such as air resistance. Round all answers to three decimal

places.

1. Find the initial and final vertical and horizontal velocities during one parabolic maneuver. www.nasa.gov Weightless

Wonder – Reduced Gravity Flight 4/9

3. Find the maximum altitude, in meters, the plane reached. For students in a calculus based physics class,

verify the maximum point using calculus.

41

4. Find the horizontal displacement, in meters, of the plane during one parabolic maneuver.

6. How many parabolas would the pilot need to complete in order for the astronaut to have had at least 15% of

his flight in microgravity?

David and Colby are trying to find the location of a bullet that was fired from a 9mm pistol. From witness

reports, they estimate that the gun was five feet off the ground when it was shot. The shooter was standing

in a large, level field and fired one shot over the victim’s heads to scare them. David and Colby estimate

that the angle of elevation of the gun when it was fired was 10 degrees. They know that a 9mm pistol can

launch a bullet with an initial velocity of 455 feet per second (after air resistance has been taken into

account). They have drawn the following sketch to model the situation:

Press the Mode button on your calculator and match your mode screen to the first screen shot below.

Press the Y = button, and match your Y = screen to the second shot below. (When you press the X key in

parametric mode, the letter T will appear.)

Since they are dealing with feet and not meters, acceleration due to gravity is 32 ft/s2 and not 9.8 m/s2. All of

the same rules apply though…

1. Describe how each term in the parametric equations relates to the bullet’s trajectory.
