1. An airplane is traveling at 150 km/h in a horizontal line on its way to drop emergency supplies to a
group of flood victims 200 m below. The supplies should be dropped how many seconds before the
2. Rob launches a water balloon at 14.0 m/s at an angle of 30.0o to the horizontal. How high will it go?
3. Robin Hood fires an arrow horizontally at 89.0 m/s at a target 60.0 m away. When it is fired, the
arrow is 1.00 m above the ground. How far away from the target does the arrow land?
4. An Olympic long jumper is capable of jumping 8.00 m. Assuming her horizontal velocity is 9.00 m/s,
how high would she go?
5. Bart fires a water balloon at 25.0 m/s at 35.0o to the horizontal. What is the maximum height of the
water balloon?
6. The Easter Bunny is hopping down a Calgary street when it comes to a pothole 2.65 m wide. If Bunny
leaves the ground at 8.54 m/s at an angle of 22.4o, does Bunny make it safely to the other side?
7. A ball is thrown at 15.0 m/s from ground level at 45.0o to the horizontal towards a building 18.0 m
away. How high above ground does the ball hit the building?
8. The Human Cannonball is fired at 18.0 m/s at 40.0o to the ground. How far away should the net be
placed? Assume the net is at the same height above ground as the barrel of the cannon.
