KEY

SSM REASONING The vertical component of the ball’s velocity v0 changes as the ball
approaches the opposing player. It changes due to the acceleration of gravity. However, the horizontal
component does not change, assuming that air resistance can be neglected. Hence, the horizontal
component of the ball’s velocity when the opposing player fields the ball is the same as it was
initially.
SOLUTION Using trigonometry, we find that the horizontal component is
b
g
v x  v 0 cos  15 m / s cos 55  8.6 m / s
6. REASONING
y  v0 y t 
We will determine the ball’s displacement y in the vertical direction from

a t2
2 y
(Equation 3.5b). We choose this equation because we know that v0 y  0.00 m / s
(the ball initially travels horizontally) and that a y  9.80 m/s2 (assuming that upward is the +y
direction). We do not know the value of the ball’s time of flight t. However, we can determine it
from the motion in the horizontal or x direction.
SOLUTION From Equation 3.5b we have that
y  v0 y t  a y t 2   0.00 m / s  t  a y t 2  a y t 2

The motion in the horizontal direction occurs at a constant velocity of v0 x  28.0 m / s and the
displacement in the horizontal direction is x  19.6 m . Thus, it follows that
x  v0 xt
or
t

v0 x 28.0 m / s
Using this value for the time in the expression for y shows that

 9.80 m/s2   0.700 s 2  2.40 m
Since the displacement of the ball is 2.40 m downward, the ball is 2.40 m above the court when it
leaves the racket.

REASONING

We will use the relation v2y  v02y  2a y y (Equation 3.6b) to find the skateboarder’s vertical
displacement y above the end of the ramp. When the skateboarder is at the highest point, his vertical
displacement y1 above the ground is equal to his initial height y0 plus his vertical displacement y
above the end of the ramp: y1 = y0 + y. Next we will use v y  v0 y  a y t (Equation 3.3b) to calculate
the time t from the launch to the highest point, which, with x  v0 xt  12 axt 2 (Equation 3.5a), will give
us his horizontal displacement x.
SOLUTION
a. Substituting vy = 0 m/s into Equation 3.6b and solving for y, we find
 0 m/s   v02y  2a y y

Therefore, the highest point y1 reached by

Given that ax = 0 m/s2, the relation x  v0 xt  12 axt 2 (Equation 3.5a) reduces to x  v0 x t . Substituting
Equation (1) for t then gives the skateboarder’s horizontal displacement:

8. REASONING The magnitude (or speed) v of the ball’s velocity is related to its x and y velocity
components
(vx and vy )
by
the
Pythagorean
theorem;
v  v x2  v 2y
(Equation 1.7).
The horizontal component vx of the ball’s velocity never changes during the flight, since, in the
absence of air resistance, there is no acceleration in the x direction (ax = 0 m/s2). Thus, vx is equal to
the horizontal component v0x of the initial velocity, or vx  v0 x  v0 cos 40.0 . Since v0 is known, vx
can be determined.
The vertical component vy of the ball’s velocity does change during the flight, since the acceleration
in the y direction is that due to gravity (ay = 9.80 m/s2). The relation v 2y  v02 y  2a y y (Equation
2.6b)
may
be
used
to
find
v 2y ,
since
ay,
y,
and
v0y
are
known
(v0y = v0 sin 40.0º).
