This is an even problem from Cutnell & Johnson 8 edition. Can anyone verify if it is correct? In the annual battle of the dorms, students gather on the roofs of Jackson and Walton dorms to launch water balloons at each other with slingshots. The horizontal distance between the buildings is 35.0 m, and the heights of the Jackson and Walton buildings are, respectively, 15.0 m and 22.0 m. Ignore air resistance. (a) The first balloon launched by the Jackson team hits Walton dorm 2.0 s after launch, striking it halfway between the ground and the roof. Find the direction of the balloon's initial velocity. Give your answer as an angle measured above the horizontal. (b) A second balloon launched at the same angle hits the edge of Walton's roof. Find the initial speed of this second balloon. MY WORK FOR PART A t = 2 seconds x = 35 meters y = -4 meters Vox = x/t = 35/2 Vox = 17.5 m/s Vox = VocosƟ 17.5 = VocosƟ Vo = 17.5/cosƟ Voy = Vo + at y = Voyt + 0.5at2 = -VosinƟ -4.9t2 -4 = (17.5/cosƟ)sinƟt -4.9t2 <----plug in t = 2 -4 = (17.5)(2)tanƟ - (4.9)(4) Ɵ = 24.0 degrees Vo = 17.5/cosƟ Vo = 17.5/cosƟ = 19.2 m/s ahh i forgot to do part B.....But the answer is 28.9 m/s for part B?
