A shot putter releases the shot some distance above the level ground with a velocity of 12.0 m/s, 51.00 above the horizontal. The shot hits the ground 2.08 s later. You can ignore air resistance.
(a) What are the components of the shot s acceleration while in flight?
(b) What are the components of the shot s velocity at the beginning and at the end of its trajectory?
(c) How far did she throw the shot horizontally?
(d) Why does the expression for R in Example 3.8 not give the correct answer for part (c)? (e) How high was the shot above the ground when she released it? (f) Draw x-t, y-t, v.-t, and vy-t graphs for the motion. |
