Projectile motion

Projectile Motion

  • Projectile motion- The path an object travels through space.

  • I am Proving that Jack will not be able to make it clear across the cliff by launching himself into the air with the stick tied to him.


Movie explanation

Movie Explanation

  • Captain Jack gets tied to a bamboo stick and he gets hunted and gets fruit thrown at him which ironically gets stuck to each end of the stick. He tires to escape by  a catapulting launch with the top of the stick across the cliff.


Estimates

Estimates

  •  Stick length- .09 m 

  • Mass weight- 185 lbs

  • Time- 3.80 seconds

  • Distance- .34 m

  • Starting angle-40°


Calculations

Calculations

  • D=Vxt

  • 34m = Vx(3.8)                Vx = VicosΘ

  • 34m/3.8                            8.95m/s = Vi (cos40°)

  • Vx = 8.95 m/s          Vi = 11.68 m/s (3600s)(  1min  )

  • hr      1609m

  •                                                        Vi = 26 mph

  •  Explanations:

  •    I first took the first equation which was distance =  velocity x time which gave me the distance that he was running. The second equation I  simply plugged in the distance to the equation to find the speed that he was running and after multiplying anf dividing out the numbers that were found I got that Jack was running 26mph.


Formulas

Formulas

  • D=Vxt

  • Vx=Vi cos Θ

  • H=1/2 gt 2


What should have happened

What should have happened.....

Vx= 8.95m/s

*If he was running at 8.95m/s he would be going down when running off the cliff. He would drop a total of 47m, which is halfway down the cliff from where he originally landed.*


Comparison

Comparison

  • Top speed of an olympic sprinter- 2.31 m/s

  • He was running  11.68 m/s

  • He is going 5 times the speed of an olympic sprinter.

  • In the calculations I found Jacks speed which was 26mph. After plugging the olympic runners speed in we got 5.17mph. That wouldd prove that Jack is running 5 times the speed of an olympic runner.

  •    **** Vx = VicosΘ**** 

  • 2.31m/s = (3600)(   1   )    Vx = 5.17 mph  

  • hr      1609                                 


Conclusion

Conclusion

  • In conclusion Captain Jack will not be able to make it clear across the cliff because he will come too short of the other edge.
