You need to aim a cannon for a circus act. A performer will be shot out of a cannon, pass through the hoop at her maximum height, and then land safely in a net. The net is 86 meters away from the cannon and the loop is 30 meters above the cannon and the net. If the performer will fly out of the cannon at 30 m/s, then at what angle should the cannon be fired?
The answer is 55 degrees. However, I do not know the steps to follow.

A circus act consists of a performer (a "human cannonball") being launched from a cannon into a net at the other end of the stage. The performer (mass 60 kg) leaves the cannon at a speed of 25 m/s at an angle of 30o above horizontal. She comes out of the cannon at a height of 2 meters above the ground and lands in the net at a horizontal distance of 45 meters away from the launch point. 1. How...
During a circus act, an elderly performer thrills the crowd by catching a cannon ball shot at him. The cannon ball has a mass of 10.0 kg and the horizontal component of its velocity is 8.00 m/s when the 65.0 kg performer catches it. If the performer is on nearly frictionless roller skates, what is his recoil velocity? How much kinetic energy is lost in this process?
A circus performer is shot out of a cannon angled 40◦ above the ground at 8.4 m/s. What is the maximum height the circus performer reaches above the cannon assuming air resistance is negligible? A. 1.5 m B. 3.0 m C. 4.2 m D. 5.4 m 2. Maryam rides her bicycle 51 m east, and then turns and rides 68 m north. What is her displacement from her starting position? A. 17 m B. 85 m C. 92 m D....

At a circus, a clown is being shot out of a cannon. This is a good thing because clowns are terrifying. The cannon’s barrel makes an angle of 35 degrees with the ground and the initial velocity has magnitude 10.4 m/s. The end of the barrel is 1.0 m above the ground. A 1.0 m thick mattress, with sides 2.0 m long, is placed so its closest edge is a horizontal distance of 10.0 m from the end of the...
Really need help with 1) How fast was Stan going at the time of impact? Stan the Man, from the local circus, was a human cannon ball. While practicing one day, he was shot out of a cannon and into a canyon and subsequently died. It is believed it was murder but suicide cannot be ruled out, yet. Here are the facts of the case One afternoon, Stan climbed into the cannon for reasons we do not know. According to...
The Flying Physics Brothers, Stu and Lou, end their act by both being shot out of cannons. They fly through the air and land at the same height they left the cannons. Assume air resistance can be neglected Stu's initial speed is 15.91 m/s and Lou's initial speed is 20.28 m/s. Stu leaves the cannon at an angle of 64.8° and Lou leaves the cannon at an angle of 35.1°. As usual, the angles are measured upwards from the positive-x...

1. A stunt performer (m=60 kg) is launched from a cannon (safely). Inside the cannon the performer is launched straight up in the air, from rest to a speed of 30 m/s through an 8 m long cannon. a) (2 pts) How much energy is required to launch the performer? b) (2 pts) How much force is required to launch the performer? c) (4 pts) What is the performer's speed when they are 10 m above the ground? 2. An...
Hi there! I need to compare two essay into 1 essay, and make it interesting and choose couple topics which im going to talk about in my essay FIRST ESSAY “Teaching New Worlds/New Words” bell hooks Like desire, language disrupts, refuses to be contained within boundaries. It speaks itself against our will, in words and thoughts that intrude, even violate the most private spaces of mind and body. It was in my first year of college that I read Adrienne...
