1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data We need to fin the initial velocity of a water fountain. The data I have collected is: Height (bottom to apex)= 0.042 m Distance (from spout to end on the stream)= 0.112 m Time (it takes to travel)= .25 seconds Angle the water shoots from= 50 degrees Here is more if it helps. Vertical - D= .042 m - T= .25 s - Vfinal= 0 m/s - a= 9.8 m/s2 - angle= 50 degrees Horizontal - D= .112 m - T= .25 s - angle= 50 degrees 2. Relevant equations V= d/t, This can be used to find the horizontal component ( in the x direction) because Vxcomponent= average velocity. Vycomponent= vertical initial velocity vf= vi + at d=Vi *t +1/2at2 a= acceleration t= time d=distance ( only used with Vertical data) Vf2= vi2 + 2ad 3. The attempt at a solution I know that I must find the x and y component vectors but I do not know what equation to use. I tried this four different ways and got four different answers and I'm just really frustrated. I was told to use the vf= vi + at equation for the vertical component and the v=d/t for the horizontal, and they said something about half time, I dont know.
