• Example:

Parallelogram

### Vector Components

• In situations in which vectors are directed at angles to the customary coordinate axes, a useful mathematical trick will be employed to transform the vector into two parts with each part being directed along the coordinate axes.

• Any vector directed in two dimensions can be thought of as having an influence in two different directions.

• Each part of a two-dimensional vector is known as a component.

• The components of a vector depict the influence of that vector in a given direction.

• The combined influence of the two components is equivalent to the influence of the single two-dimensional vector.

• The single two-dimensional vector could be replaced by the two components.

Vectors can be broken into COMPONENTS

X-Y system of components

AX = A cos θ

AY = A sin θ

Example

vi = 5.0 m/s at 30°

vix = 5.0 m/s (cos 30°) = 4.33 m/s

viy = 5.0 m/s (sin 30°) = 2.5 m/s

Any vector can be broken into unlimited sets of components

EXAMPLE

Calculate the x and y components of the following vectors.

a. A = 7 meters at 14°

b. B = 15 meters per second at 115°

c. C = 17.5 meters per second2 at 276°

Results are used to find

RESULTANT MAGNITUDE

RESULTANT DIRECTION

### Example

a. Calculate the components of vectors D and F.

D = 35 meters at 25° F = 55 meters at 190°

b. Calculate the sum of the x-components of vectors D and F.

c. Calculate the sum of the y-components of vectors D and F.

Homework quiz – Friday

Lab – Thu. / Fri. – Dress warm

How would Homer know that he is hurtling

through interstellar space if his speed were

constant?

Without a window, he wouldn’t!

All of the Laws of Motion apply within his

FRAME of REFERENCE

### ALL Motion is RELATIVE!

Do you feel like you are motionless

right now?

The only way to define motion is by changing position…

The question is changing position relative to WHAT?!?

MORE MOTION!!!

YOU'RE NOT!

You are moving at about 1000 miles per hour relative to the

center of the Earth!

The Earth is hurtling around the Sun at over

66,000 miles per hour!

### Example #1

A train is moving east at 25 meters per second. A man on the train gets up and walks toward the front at 2 meters per second.

How fast is he going?

Depends on what we want to relate his speed to!!!

+2 m/s (relative to a fixed point on the train)

+27 m/s (relative to a fixed point on the Earth)

vperson = +2 m/s

vtrain = +25 m/s

### Non-Parallel Vectors

What happens to the aircraft’s forward speed when the wind changes direction?

Wind is now slowing the plane

somewhat AND pushing it

SOUTH.

Wind is now working against

the aircraft thrust, slowing it

down, but causing no drift.

Wind is now NOT having any

effect on forward movement,

but pushes plane SOUTH.

Wind is still giving the plane

extra speed, but is also

pushing it SOUTH.

Wind in same direction

as plane – adds to overall

velocity!

No wind – plane

moves with velocity

that comes from engines

### example

• Which pair of forces acting concurrently on an object will produce the resultant of greatest magnitude?

100 km/hr)2 + (25 km/hr)2 = R2

10 000 km2/hr2 + 625 km2/hr2 = R2

10 625 km2/hr2 = R2

SQRT(10 625 km2/hr2) = R

103.1 km/hr = R

tan (θ) = (25/100)

θ = tan-1(25/100)

θ = 14.0o – CCW 256o

### Analysis of a Riverboat's Motion

• The affect of the wind upon the plane is similar to the affect of the river current upon the motorboat.

Suppose that the river was moving with a velocity of 3 m/s, North and the motorboat was moving with a velocity of 4 m/s, East. What would be the resultant velocity of the motorboat (i.e., the velocity relative to an observer on the shore)?

(4.0 m/s)2 + (3.0 m/s)2 = R2

16 m2/s2 + 9 m2/s2 = R2

25 m2/s2 = R2

SQRT (25 m2/s2) = R

5.0 m/s = R

tan(θ) = (3/4)

θ = tan-1 (3/4)

θ = 36.9o

5 m/s

• If the width of the river is 80 meters wide, then how much time does it take the boat to travel shore to shore?

time = distance /(ave. speed)

time = (80 m)/(4 m/s) = 20 s

80 m

5 m/s

• What distance downstream does the boat reach the opposite shore?

distance = ave. speed * time

d

distance = = (3 m/s) * (20 s)

distance = 60 m

### Perpendicular Kinematics

Critical variable in multi dimensional problems is TIME.

We must consider each dimension SEPARATELY, using TIME as the only crossover VARIABLE.

### Example

Now, assume that as the swimmer moves ACROSS the river, a current pushes him DOWNSTREAM at 0.1 meter per second.

200 m

vs = 0.5 m/s

How long will it take the swimmer

to get across?

t =0

vc= 0.1 m/s

The time to cross is unaffected! The

swimmer still arrives on the other bank

in 400 seconds. What IS different?

t = 400 s

The arrival POINT will be

shifted DOWNSTREAM!

A swimmer moving at 0.5 meters per second swims across a 200 meter wide river.

## Fire Away!!!

Ground Launched Projectiles

### What is a projectile?

An object that is launched into the air with some INITIAL VELOCITY

Can be launched at ANY ANGLE

In FREEFALL after launch (no outside forces except force of gravity)

The path of the projectile is a PARABOLA

### Initial velocity

What is the horizontal part of

the soccer ball’s initial velocity?

What is the vertical part of

the soccer ball’s initial velocity?

Acceleration = -9.81 m/s2

Vertical speed will be 0 at the maximum height

Time to top = HALFtotal time in the air

Use time to top and solve vertical distance equation

### What do we know or assume about the horizontal part of a projectile problem?

Initial vertical velocity = vi cos θ

### summary

• A projectile is any object upon which the only force is gravity

• Projectiles travel with a parabolic trajectory due to the influence of gravity,

• In horizontal direction, the projectile has no acceleration, its velocity is constant: vx = vicosθ

• In vertical direction, the projectile has acceleration: a = -9.81 m/s/s. Its velocity of a projectile changes by -9.81 m/s each second. Same as a free falling object.

• The horizontal motion of a projectile is independent of its vertical motion

### Example

• An object was projected horizontally from a tall cliff. The diagram represents the path of the object, neglecting friction.

• Comparing the following at point A & B:

• Acceleration

• Horizontal velocity

• Vertical velocity

A projectile is fired with initial horizontal velocity at 10.00 m/s, and vertical velocity at 19.62 m/s. Determine the horizontal and vertical velocity at 1 – 5 seconds after the projectile is fired.

• Kinematics unit test is on next Friday – 10/19

### Equation for projectile motion

d = ½ (vi + vf)t

vf = vi + at

d = vit + ½at2

Vertical

• ay = -9.81 m/s2

Horizontal

• ax = 0

viy = visinθ

vfy = 0 (at top)

vfy = - viy (at same height)

y = ½ (viy + vfy)t

vfy = viy + ayt

y = viyt + ½ayt2

vfy2 = viy2 + 2ayy

vix = vicosθ

x = vix∙t

### Initial Velocity Components

• Since velocity is a vector quantity, vector resolution is used to determine the components of velocity.

vi2 = vix2 + viy2

SOH CAH TOA

sinθ = viy / vi

viy = visinθ

cosθ = vix / vi

vix = vicosθ

vi

viy

θ

vix

Special case: horizontally launched projectile:

θ = 0o:viy = visinθ = 0; vix = vicosθ = vi

### Examples

• Practice A: A water balloon is launched with a speed of 40 m/s at an angle of 60 degrees to the horizontal.

• Practice B: A motorcycle stunt person traveling 70 mi/hr jumps off a ramp parallel to the horizontal.

• Practice C: A springboard diver jumps with a velocity of 10 m/s at an angle of 80 degrees to the horizontal.

### example

• A machine fired several projectiles at the same angle, θ, above the horizontal. Each projectile was fired with a different initial velocity, vi. The graph below represents the relationship between the magnitude of the initial vertical velocity, viy, and the magnitude of the corresponding initial velocity, vi, of these projectiles. Calculate the magnitude of the initial horizontal velocity of the projectile, vix, when the magnitude of its initial velocity, vi, was 40. meters per second.

• The point of resolving an initial velocity vector into its two components is to use the values of these two components to analyze a projectile's motion and determine such parameters as

• the horizontal displacement,

• the vertical displacement,

• the final vertical velocity,

• the time to reach the peak of the trajectory,

• the time to fall to the ground, etc.

### Example

• A football is kicked with an initial velocity of 25 m/s at an angle of 45-degrees with the horizontal. Determine the time of flight, the horizontal displacement, and the peak height of the football.

Due to the symmetrical nature of a projectile's trajectory: viy = - vfy

Solve for t – use vertical information:

vfy = viy + ayt

t = 3.61 s

Solve for x – use horizontal information:

x = vix•t + ½ •ax•t2

x = 63.8 m

Solve for peak height – use vertical information:

vfy2 = viy2 + 2ayypeak

At the top, vfy = 0

ypeak = 15.9 m

### example

• A long jumper leaves the ground with an initial velocity of 12 m/s at an angle of 28-degrees above the horizontal. Determine the time of flight, the horizontal distance, and the peak height of the long-jumper.

t = 1.1 s

x = 12.2 m

ypeak = 1.6 m

### Example

• A cannon elevated at an angle of 35° to the horizontal fires a cannonball, which travels the path shown in the diagram.  [Neglect air resistance and assume the ball lands at the same height above the ground from which it was launched.] If the ball lands 7.0 × 102 meters from the cannon 7.0 seconds after it was fired,

• what is the horizontal component of its initial velocity?

• what is the vertical component of its initial velocity?

## Over the Edge

Horizontal Projectiles

A red ball rolls off the edge of a table

What does its path look like as it falls?

Parabolic path

### Horizontally Launched Projectiles

• A horizontally launched projectile is a projectile launched with only horizontal speed. Its initialvertical speed is zero.

Thus, the projectile travels with a constant horizontal velocity and a downward vertical acceleration.

As the red ball rolls off the edge, a green

ball is dropped from rest from the same

height at the same time

Which one will hit the ground first?

They will hit

at the SAME

TIME!!!

### The same time?!? How?!?

The green ball falls from rest

and has no initial

velocity IN EITHER

DIRECTION!

viy and vix = 0

The red ball has an initial

HORIZONTAL velocity (vix)

But does not have any initial

VERTICAL velocity (viy = 0)

vix

### One Dimension at a Time

Both balls begin with no VERTICAL VELOCITY

Both fall the same DISTANCE VERTICALLY

Find time of flight by solving in the appropriate dimension

We can find an object’s displacement in

EITHER DIMENSION using TIME

### Example #1

A bullet is fired horizontally from a gun that is 1.7 meters above the ground with a velocity of 55 meters per second.

At the same time that the bullet is fired, the shooter drops an identical bullet from the same height.

Which bullet hits the ground first?

Both hit the ground at the same time

### Velocity of Horizontal Projectiles

Horizontal motion is constant: velocity is constant.

Vertical: same as drop the ball from rest: velocity is increasing by 9.81 m/s every second

### Displacement of horizontal Projectiles

Horizontal motion is constant: x = vix∙t

Vertical: same as free fall with initial zero velocity: y = ½ a∙t2 (a = - 9.81 m/s2)

### Equation for horizontal projectile

Vertical

• ay = -9.81 m/s2

Horizontal

• ax = 0

θ = 0

d = ½ (vi + vf)t

vf = vi + at

d = vit + ½at2

viy = = 0

y = ½ (viy + vfy)t

vfy = viy + ayt

y = viyt + ½ayt2

vfy2 = viy2 + 2ayy

vix = vicosθ = vi

x = vix∙t

x and y has the same t

### Example #2

An airplane making a supply drop to troops behind enemy lines is flying with a speed of 300 meters per second at an altitude of 300 meters.

How far from the drop zone should the aircraft drop the supplies?

Need time from vertical

dy = viyt + ½ ayt2

300 m = 0 + ½ (-9.81 m/s2)t2

t = 7.82 s

Use time in horizontal

dx = vixt + ½ axt2

dx = (300 m/s)(7.82 s) + 0

dx = 2346 m

### Example #3

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.

What minimum initial velocity does he need in order to make it onto the air mattress?

Need time from vertical

dy = viyt + ½ ayt2

45 m = 0 + ½ (-9.81 m/s2)t2

t = 3.03 s

Use time to find v

v = d / t

v = 15 m / 3.03 s

v = 4.95 m /s

### Example #4

A CSI detective investigating an accident scene finds a car that has flown off the edge of a cliff. The car is 79 meters from the edge of the 25 meter high cliff.

What was the car’s initial horizontal velocity as it went off the edge?

Example #4

Need time from vertical

dy = viyt + ½ ayt2

25 m = 0 + ½ (-9.81 m/s2)t2

t = 2.26 s

Use time in horizontal

dx = vixt + ½ axt2

79 m = vix (2.26 s) + 0

vix = 34.96 m/s

### Example #5

The path of a stunt car driven horizontally off a cliff is represented in the diagram below. After leaving the cliff, the car falls freely to point A in 0.50 second and to point B in 1.00 second.

• Determine the magnitude of the horizontal component of the velocity of the car at point B. [Neglect friction.]

• Determine the magnitude of the vertical velocity of the car at point A.

• Calculate the magnitude of the vertical displacement, dy, of the car from point A to point B. [Neglect friction.]

### Practice #1

• A pool ball leaves a 0.60-meter high table with an initial horizontal velocity of 2.4 m/s. Predict the time required for the pool ball to fall to the ground and the horizontal distance between the table's edge and the ball's landing location.

### Practice #2

• A soccer ball is kicked horizontally off a 22.0-meter high hill and lands a distance of 35.0 meters from the edge of the hill. Determine the initial horizontal velocity of the soccer ball.

### Lab Projectile motion

PURPOSE

• To predict the impact point of a ball in projectile motion.

MATERIALS

• Computer, books, Vernier computer interface, ruler, Logger Pro, two ring stands, two Vernier Photogates, two right-angle clamps, ball (1 to 5 cm diameter), meter stick, masking tape for target

PRELIMINARY QUESTIONS

• If you were to drop a ball, releasing it from rest, what information would be needed to predict how much time it would take for the ball to hit the floor? What assumptions must you make?

• If the ball in Question 1 is traveling at a known horizontal velocity when it starts to fall, explain how you would calculate how far it will travel before it hits the ground.

3.A pair of computer-interfaced Photogates can be used to accurately measure the time interval for an object to break the beam of one Photogate and then another. If you wanted to know the velocity of the object, what additional information would you need?
