A playground is on the flat roof of a city school, hb = 5.70 m above the street below (see figure). The vertical wall of the building is h = 6.90 m high, to form a 1.2-m-high railing around the playground. A ball has fallen to the street below, and a passerby returns it by launching it at an angle of θ = 53.0° above the horizontal at a point d = 24.0 m from the base of the building wall. The ball takes 2.20 s to reach a point vertically above the wall.

(a) Find the speed at which the ball was launched.

18.127

Correct: Your answer is correct.
m/s

(b) Find the vertical distance by which the ball clears the wall.


(c) Find the horizontal distance from the wall to the point on the roof where the ball lands.

  2. well for part c it still has the same old horizontal velocity
    u = 18.1 cos 53
    so
    x = u t where t is the time to fall from the point where it it is above the wall up there to the roof.
    call v the vertical velocity up when it is directly above the wall and 1.23 meters above it
    then we have
    h = wall height + height above wall + v t - 4.9 t^2
    when h = 0, we are at the roof
    solve that for t
    use the longer t of the two results, the first solution to the quadratic was at the roof as the ball went up.
