Recall Gravity
  • The acceleration due to gravity
  • What goes up.
  • Must come down.

ag= g = 9.8 m/s2 [Down]

Vf = 0 m/s

Vi = 0 m/s

Vi = 10 m/s

Vf = -10 m/s

Concept Check
  • What determines how long it will take an object to reach the ground when released with an initial velocity of zero?
projectile motion
Projectile motion
  • Motion of an object only under the influence of gravity (Path is a 2D curve)
  • Can be broken up into two parts and analyzed separetely!

Sample Problem
  • A cannon on top of a 10 m wall fires a cannonball at an initial velocity of 10 m/s in the horizontal direction. How far will the cannonball go before it hits the ground?

R: Δdx = ?

  • In the “X” Direction
  • vx = 10 m/s [R]
  • Use Δdx = vx × Δt

  • In the “Y” Direction
  • viy = 0 m/s
  • diy = 10 m [D]
  • ay = 9.8 m/s2 [D]
  • Use Δdy = viyΔt +1/2 ay (Δt)2

Solution

**Choose +/- directions

[R] = +

[D] = -

Let’s work with the y-direction first

  • In the “Y” Direction
  • viy = 0 m/s
  • diy = 10 m [D] = - 10m
  • ay = 9.8 m/s2 [D] = - 9.8 m/s2
  • Use Δdy = viyΔt +1/2 ay (Δt)2

-10 = 0 + ½ (-9.8) (Δt)2

-10 = ½ (-9.8) (Δt)2

2(10)/9.8 = (Δt)2

2.04 = (Δt)2

1.4 = Δt

Now that we have time we can go back to the x-direction

  • In the “X” Direction
  • vx = 10 m/s [R] = + 10 m/s
  • Use Δdx = vx × Δt

Δdx = 10 m/s (1.4 s)

Δdx= 14 m

Therefore object will land 14 m away from the edge of the wall
