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???

hmmm aparently that's not how you do it

hmmm could you please show me how to get the time step by step

don't you have to use this equation

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

write it in the second dimension

Y = 2^-1 g t^2 + Vo t + Yo

and sense there is no Yo

I get this

Y = 2^-1 g t^2 + Vo t

still not enoguh to solve for time

so I don't get it

for the y component of the inital velocity I got about 1.498 s^-1 m

I do belive there is one...

If you start at the top, there is no initial velocity. Find the time downward, then double if for the entire trip.

oh... lol thanka

- ONE MORE QUESTION -
**WAIT ONE MORE QUESTION**, Saturday, July 11, 2009 at 9:50pm
lol ok um so then I have this equation

y = 2^-1 g t^2

ok I get it

however I do not know y

how do I get y

thanks

thanks for helping me solve this problem

- i get it now -
**oh ok...**, Saturday, July 11, 2009 at 9:52pm
thanks

so the equation is

x = 2^-1 a t^2

were I know a is about 3.671 s^-1 m

thanks guys!
