physics (clear answer)

A golfer hits a shot to a green that is elevated 3 m above the point where the ball is struck. The ball leaves the club at a speed of 16.0 m/s at an angle of 38.5° above the horizontal. It rises to its maximum height and then falls down to the green. Ignoring air resistance, find the speed of the ball just before it lands.

  1. vertical problem first
    Vi = 16 sin 38.5 = 9.96 m/s
    v = Vi - g t = 9.96 - 9.81 t
    h = Hi + Vi t - (1/2) g t^2
    3 = 0 + 9.96 t - 4.9 t^2
    4.9 t^2 - 9.96 t + 3 = 0
    t = [ 9.96 +/- sqrt(99.2-58.8) ]/9.81
    t = [9.96 +/- 6.36 ] /9.81
    t = 1.66 seconds in air
    v = 9.96 - 9.81(1.66) = -6.36 m/s when it hits
    U = 16 cos 38.5 = 12.5
    speed = sqrt(12.5^2 + 6.36^2)
    = 14 m/s
