Projectile Motion – Fired at ground level

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 .....

Projectile Motion – Pool ball leaves the table with initial horizontal velocity

A pool ball leaves a 0.20-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 tab...

Force on a batted ball – Impulse

A baseball (m = 0.14 kg) thrown by a pitcher reaches a bat with a velocity of 32.0 m/s in a horizontal direction.
a) Computer the impulse that must be applied to the ball if it is to leave the...

Lagrange for uniform thin disk

Coider a uniform thin disk that rolls without slipping on a horizontal plane. A horizontal force is applied to the center of the disk and in a direction parallel to the plane of the disk.De...

Escape veolcity for Earth

The escape velocity of a particle on Earth is the minimum velocity required at Earth's surface in order that that particle can escape from Earth's gravitational field. Neglecting the resistance of the...

Equation of motion for a rocket

Rockets are propelled by the momentum reaction of the exhaust gases expelled from the tail. Since these gases arise from the raction of the fuels carried in the rocket, the mass of the rocket is no...
