You and your friend are practicing pass plays with a football. You throw the football at a 35.0° angle above the horizontal at 19.0 m/s. Your friend starts right next to you, and he moves down the field directly away from you at 5.50 m/s. How long after he starts running should you throw the football? Assume he catches the ball at the same height at which you throw it.

  • Physics -

    Vo = (19m/s,35 deg.).
    Xo = hor.= 19cos35 = 15.56m/s.
    Yo = ver.= 19sin35 = 10.90m/s.

    h = (Vf^2 - Yo^2) / 2g,
    h = (0 - (10.9)^2) / -19.6 = 6.06m.
    t(up) = (Vf - Yo) / g,
    t(up) = (0 - 10.9) / -9.8 = 1.11s.

    t(dn) = t(up) = 1.11s.

    T = t(up) + t(dn) = 1.1 + 1.11 = 2.22s
    = Time in flight.
    d = Xo*T = 15.56 * 2.22 = 34.5m = hor
    distance traveled.

    t = d/V = 34.5 / 5.5 = 6.27s
    td + T = 6.27s,
    td = 6.27 - T = 6.27 - 2.22 = 4.07s.
    after the receiver starts running, the
    ball should be thrown.
