Physics - 2-D kinematics

posted by .

A soccer ball is kicked with an initial horizontal velocity of 20 m/s and an initial vertical velocity of 16 m/s.

I've calculated:

Initial Speed: 25.61 m/s
Angle: 38.66 degrees
Maximum Height it reaches: 13.06 m
Distance kicked: 65.29m


What is the speed of the ball 0.7 seconds after it was kicked?

How high above the ground is the ball 0.7 seconds after it is kicked?

help? please.

  • Physics - 2-D kinematics -

    the horizontal speed hs does not change
    the vertical speed vs is 16-9.8t
    vs(.7) = 16-9.8*.7 = 9.14

    so, the speed is sqrt(9.14^2 + 20^2) = 21.99 m/s

    vertical distance d = 1/2 at^2
    d(.7) = 4.9*.7^2 = 2.4m
