Fundamental Problem 15.12 The cannon and support without a projectile have a mass of 250 kg. If a 20 kg projectile is fired from the cannon with a velocity of 400 m/s , measured relative to the cannon, determine the speed of the projectile as it leaves the barrel of the cannon...

**Physics - check my work**

A cannon is fired from a cliff 190 m high downward at an angle of 38o with respect to the horizontal. If the muzzle velocity is 41 m/s, what is its speed (in m/s) when it hits the ground? Please check my work. I think it’s wrong, but I don’t know where I’m messing up… Vx = 41 ...

If a ship is sailing with a constant speed of 30 m/s to the east and a cannonball is launched straight up into the air from the deck of the ship, why does the cannonball land back in the cannon and not in the ocean behind?

**Physics**

When a cannon with a longer barrel is fired, the force of expanding gases acts on the cannonball for a longer distance. What effect does this have on the velocity of the emerging cannonball? (Do you see why long-range cannons have such long barrels?) Please help; need a ...

**Calculus**

A human cannonball is shot from a cannon at a speed of 21 meters per second at an angle of 20 degrees; how long before his height is 0? How far did he travel in that time?

**Physics**

A pistol that fires a signal flare gives the flare an initial speed (muzzle speed) of 185 m/s. (a) If the flare is fired at an angle of 45° above the horizontal on the level salt flats of Utah, what is its horizontal range? You can ignore air resistance. (km) (b) If the flare ...

Why does a cannonball shot from a cannon with a long barrel travel faster than the same cannonball shot from a cannon with a shorter barrel?
