You throw a rock with an initial horizontal velocity and it hits the ground at x meters away from your feet. What if: (a) You throw the same stone with the same initial conditions but instead you do this on a another planet with a mass 4 times the mass of the earth. With what factor will x change? (b) You throw the same stone with the same initial conditions but instead you do this on a another planet with a radius 7 times the radius of the earth. With what factor will x change?
Let the height from which rock is thrown is h
Now , when thrown on other planet .
a) M' = 4M
b) . R' = 7R

when you throw a rock from a window 2m above ground with an initial velocity of 10m/s find the the magnitude and angle of where it landed. please explain how to approach the problem and solve
Recall that the height at the time of a rock tossed into the air at time from a height at an initial velocity is given by Time is measured in seconds, height in feet, and velocity in feet per second. The positive direction is up, so if the rock is moving down then its velocity is negative. The magic number 16 in this equation is due to the mass and radius of earth and would be different for example on Mars or on the Moon....
A rock A moving with horizontal speed of 10.0 m/s hits rock B which was at rest, and which has 2 times less mass then A. After the collision, the rocks scatter off, so that A goes 20 degrees above the horizontal, whereas B goes 35 degrees above the horizontal. Find the speeds vfA and vfB that the rocks have just after the collision. Ignore friction, or any other external forces acting in the horizontal plane! Note: In the end,...
From the top of a building, you throw a ball upward with initial velocity of 4.00 m/s at an angle of 50 degrees with respect to the horizontal. a) what are the velocity components of the ball at point A, B, C, and D? b) how far from the building is point D? From the top of a building, you throw a ball upwards with initial velocity of 4.00 m/s at an angle of 50° with respect to the horizontal....
You plan to throw stones by using a sling that you whirl over your head. You will whirl the stone in a horizontal circle with a radius of 2.50 m at a height of 2.50 m above the ground (this is often referred to as a "conical pendulum"). If you want the stone to hit a target on the ground a distance of 13.5 m away, what must be the magnitude of the centripetal acceleration of the stone just before...
Hello! any help is appreaciated, thank you! You throw a rock off a tall building of height h with speed vi and angle θ. How fast is the rock going when it hits the ground? Only use variable (no numbers). What happens to your answer if you change θ? Explain your reasoning
Question 21 5 pts A small space rock of mass m is released from rest a very long distance away ("infinity from a planet of mass M and radius R. The rock falls to the planet's surface. What is the network done on the rock by the force of gravity from the initial moment of release to just before it hits the surface of the planet? You can ignore air resistance and assume that the rock falls in along a...
You throw a rock with an initial speed of 30 m/s and an angle of 50 degrees with respect to the vertical. The field you are on is however not horizontal but is inclined by an angle of 10 degrees with respect to and above the horizontal. Choose a coordinate system whose origin is located where the rock is thrown, and a rotated system such that the positive y axis is positive at an angle of 100 degrees measured counterclockwise...
Two friends are playing golf. The first friend hits a golf ball on level ground with an initial speed of 36.5 m/s at an angle of 31.0° above the horizontal. (a) Assuming that the a ands at the same height from which it was hit, how far away from the golfer, in meters, does it land? Ignore air resistance. What constant acceleration equations will allow you to find the range, given the speed and angle? (Note that, depending on your...
You throw a ball straight up from the ground (? = 0) with an initial speed of 20 m/s. At the same time (? = 0), another ball is dropped from a building that is 15 m high. How long will it take for the two balls to be exactly the same height off the ground?
