- Homework Statement:
A bomb of mass 15.0 kg with an initial velocity of 350 m/s and horizontal velocity of 250 m/s is
projected from the edge of a cliff of a height 500 m. The kinetic energy just before it hits the target
is 500 kJ.
(a) Determine the initial kinetic energy of the bomb.
(b) Show the change of kinetic energy of the bomb.
(c) Find the value of the initial angle.
(d) Calculate the height of the target from the ground.
(e) Determine the kinetic energy and velocity at the height of 2.50 × 103 m from the
ground? [5 Marks]
- Relevant Equations:
For parts (d) and (e) I can't figure out the required steps to get the height due to the fact that I don't have the acceleration. I may have done a miscalculation for the former questions as well. I also feel (e) requires the value of a. Hope someone can help me out. Been going at this question for 2 days now.
