1 A cannon shoots a clown directly upward with a speed of 20 m/s. What height will the clown reach? How much time will the clown spend in the air? Projectile Motion 1:Horizontally Launched Projectiles Two dimensional motion is motion confined to a plane (x y axis) Motion in a plane is broken down into two mutually perpendicular components. The component along the x axis is referred to as horizontal motion while the component along the y axis is referred to as vertical motion Horizontal motion is not affected by any external forces (as long as we consider ideal cases) Vertical motion is influenced by gravity *Mass does not matter* THE BIG IDEA What happens in the vertical dimension What happens in the horizontal dimension What happens in the x dimension What happens in the y dimension So What stays the same between the horizontal and vertical? 1
2 Solving projectile motion problems The table: For all projectile motion problems: a y = Vertical (y) motion is a x = Horizontal (x) motion is For horizontally (x) launched projectiles, the projectile is launched in the: direction A cannon fires a projectile horizontally (x) at 30 m/s. What is the horizontal (x) component of the initial velocity? What is the vertical (y) component of the initial velocity? For all horizontally (x) launched projectiles, Horizontal (x) motion has no effect on vertical (y) motion. A gun is fired and a bullet is dropped simultaneously. Which bullet hits the ground first, the dropped or fired? 2
3 For each part of each problem, determine whether you are solving a vertical or horizontal motion problem before solving. Label X or Y in the column to the left. 2. A cannon shoots a projectile horizontally (x) at 50 m/s from the top of a 70 m tall cliff. a) How much time does it take the projectile to reach the ground? b) What is the range (dx) of the projectile? 3. A ball rolls toward the edge of a table that is 110 centimeters high and lands 2.0 meters away from its edge. a) How much time does it take the ball to reach the ground? b) Determine the speed with which the ball rolls of the edge. 4. A stunt car traveling toward the edge of a cliff at 25 meters per second lands 50 meters measured horizontally from the edge of the cliff. a) How much time does it take the car to reach the ground? b) Determine the height of the cliff. 5. A stuntman jumps off the edge of a 45 meter tall building to an air mattress that has been placed on the street below at 15 meters from the edge of the building. a) How much time does it take the stuntman to reach the ground? b) What minimum initial velocity does he need in order to make it onto the air mattress? Visualizing Horizontally Launched Projectiles A projectile is launched horizontally at 5 boxes per second. Create a motion/dot diagram along the top for the horizontal. Put an x on each spot Create a motion/dot diagram along the left for the vertical. Put a y on each spot Mark the intersections to see where the projectile would be in x y space The path or trajectory of the projectile is a: 3

A student standing on the roof of a 80 meter high (A) building kicks a stone at a horizontal speed of 4 meters per second (B). How much time does it take the stone to hit the ground? What is the question asking for? What are the hidden or unstated variables? A: B: Fill in the table to the right 9. A ball is thrown horizontally at a speed of 14 meters per second (A) from the top of a cliff. If the ball hits the ground 4.0 seconds (B) later, approximately how high is the cliff? What is the question asking for? What are the hidden or unstated variables? A: B: Fill in the table to the right Horizontally Launched Projectile Practice What happens in the x dimension stays in the x dimension What happens in the y dimension stays in the y dimension What does this mean? Use the table at the right. A projectile is launched horizontally at 20 m/s. Four seconds later it hits the ground. What is the range of the projectile (d x or d y )? Which v i should I use to get the range? Which a? Solve for the range. What is the initial height of the projectile (d x or d y )? Which v i should I use to get the range? Which a? Solve for the height. 5
6 10. A cannonball launches horizontally off a tall cliff at 40 m/s. Another ball is dropped. Which one will hit the ground first? Why? After 4 seconds, what is the range of the cannonball? If a train was traveling at 40 m/s, how far would that travel in 4 seconds? How does this compare to the cannonball? 11. The Enola Gay is traveling horizontally at 75 m/s at an altitude of 9470 m, when it drops the bomb. What is the initial horizontal and vertical velocity of the bomb? Create a motion/dot diagram along the top for the plane. Create a motion diagram for the bomb dropped underneath it. What does this mean for the plane and the bomb? Where is the plane when the bomb hits the ground? 6
