•Angry Birds!!
They’re angry. And following the laws of Physics!
•Today’s Objectives:
1
Review components of an objects velocity
2
Introduce the formula for projectile motion
3
Using the formula, students will be able to solve a projectile motion
problem when given initial conditions.
•The motion of an object can be explained
using this formula:
PROJECTILE MOTION:
•
D = Vi * t + (1/2) *a * t^2
•
D = displacement
Vi = Initial velocity
t = Time of travel
a = acceleration
•
•
•
•
*Remember, this formula can be applied to both
horizontal and vertical components!
•Steps to solving a projectile motion
problem
Step 1
•Make
sure to
label units for
each value.
• Record all known values from the
problem
Step 2
•The
better your
booking keeping
is, the easier your
calculations will
be!
• Use the vertical components to calculate
the time the ball will be in the air
Step 3
• Use the time and the horizontal
components to calculate the distance the
ball will travel
•Lets review projectile motion!
•
The boy on the tower throws a ball a distance of 20m. At
what speed is the ball thrown?
•Solution:
First let’s list our known values.
Horizontal Information
• Dx = 20m
• vix = ???
• ax = 0 m/s/s
•
Vertical Information
Dy = 4.9m
viy = 0 m/s
ay = 9.8 m/s/s
•We can use the vertical components of
the ball’s motion to determine the time it
will travel.
Dy = Viy*t+(1/2)Ay*t^2
4.9m = (0 m/s)•t + 0.5•(9.8 m/s/s)•t2
4.9m = (4.9 m/s/s)•t2
1 s2 = t 2
t=1s
We now use the time which we calculated
and our horizontal components to
calculate the initial velocity.
Dx = Vix*t+(1/2)Ax*t^2
20m = (Vix)•(1s) + 0.5•(0 m/s/s)•(1s)2
20m = (Vix)•(1s)
Vix= 20m/1s = 20m/s
•Lets try another!
•
•
A pool ball leaves a 0.60meter high table with an
initial horizontal velocity of
2.4 m/s.
Predict the time required for
the pool ball to fall to the
ground and the horizontal
distance between the table's
edge and the ball's landing
location.
•Solution:
First let’s list our known values.
Horizontal Information
• Dx = ???
• vix = 2.4 m/s
• ax = 0 m/s/s
Vertical Information
Dy = 0.60 m
viy = 0 m/s
ay = 9.8 m/s/s
•
2.4 m/s

.6m
|
<---???--->
9.8m/s/s
•We can use our vertical components to
find time!
Dy = Viy*t+(1/2)Ay*t^2
0.60 m = (0 m/s)•t + 0.5•(9.8 m/s/s)•t2
0.60 m = (4.9 m/s/s)•t2
0.122 s2 = t2
t = 0.350 s
Now we can use our horizontal
components to determine where the ball
will land.
Dx = Vix*t+(1/2)Ax*t^2
Dx = (2.4 m/s)•(0.3499 s) + 0.5•(0 m/s/s)•(0.3499 s)2
Dx = (2.4 m/s)•(0.3499 s)
Dx = 0.84 m
•Theory
At the instant a horizontally held rifle is fired, a bullet
held at the rifle’s side is released and drops to the
ground. Which bullet strikes the ground first?
