Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Physics on Saturday, July 11, 2009 at 9:20pm.

Ok I asked this question before

A lbock is given an intial speed of 4.0 s^-1 m up the 22 degree plane

How far up the plane will it go
ok I got this to be something like 2.2 about i understand this

i need help on this
how much time elapses before it returns to tis starting point? Ignore friction.
ok I need to know what formula to use to rearange for time

i thought it was this

x = 2^-1 a t^2 + Vo t + Xo

if i'm right then i guess I do not know how to rearange this for time because ther's a t^2 and t so could show me how to rearange this for time
thanks

ok and to find the distance i did this formula

V^2 = Vo^2 + 2a(X-Xo)
rearanged for X
x = (2a)^-1 (-Vo)^2
and if i did that correctly
I got 2.2 m so is this a valid way to doing this also

by the way I was told from

drwls this

You could also solve
y = V t - (a/2) t^2 = 0
to get the answer. Ignore the t=0 solution.
t = 8/a = 2.2

to solve for time

I just want to confirm that you had to resolve the Vo into it's componetns right to get Vo in the y direction correct and used gravity for accelration???
