For my physics class (I'm a high school student), we created slingshots. Our task is to predict the distance a projectile, launched from a slingshot using surgical tubing, would land. We aren't given ...
The following is the problem that I am working on. Three different objects each with mass $m_1<m_2<m_3$ is launched from the same height $h$ with three different angles $\theta_1 < ...
I have been looking at trebuchet designs lately, and I have noticed that most, if not all, have a sling attached to them. Without such a sling, the machine would be a catapult. In terms of the speed ...
Carl throws 100 g of Bohrium-262 (Half life: 0.10 seconds, undergoes alpha decay) to Sukhdeep with a initial horizontal velocity of 20.0 m/s at an initial height of 2.00 m above the ground. What is ...
If a stone is launched upward, of which is subject to gravity and air resistance, which of the following will have a greater kinetic energy? The stone at a point on its way up, or the stone at the ...
I bought physics for game programmers, found here, today to study ballistic impact, but I'm confused as to where a few numbers are coming from. I'm basically looking to understand what the values ...
