A ship maneuvers to within 2.50 x 10 ^3 m of an island s 1.80 x10 ^3 mountain peak and fires a projectile at an enemy ship 6.10 x10 ^2 m on the other side of the peak, as illustrated below. If the ship shoots the projectile with an initial velocity of 2.50 x10 ^2 m /s at an angle of 75.0, how close to the enemy ship does the projectile land? How close ( vertically ) does the projectile come to the peak?

A place kicker must kick a football from a point 36.0 m (about 40.0 yd) from the goal. As a result of the kick, teh ball must clear the crossbar, which is 3.05 m high. When kicked, the ball leaves the ground with a speed of 20.0 m /s at an angle of 53 to the horizontal. A)by how much does the ball clear or fall short of clearing the crossbar? B) Does the ball approach the crossbar while still rising or while falling?

The fastest recorded pitch in baseball was thrown by Nolan Ryan in 1974. If this pitch were thrown horizontally, the ball would fall 0.809 m (2.65 ft) by the time it reached home plate, 18.3 m(60ft) away. How fast was Ryan s pitch?

You and two of your friends decide to have a race. You each start from the center of a circle and travel out along different radii at the same time. One of you moves with a constant speed of v1, the second starts from rest and moves with a constant acceleration a, and the third, moving with an initial speed v2, decelerates with constant acceleration -a. Show that if all of you reach the outside of the circle (meaning the same distance away from the center) at the same time then v2 =2v1. Find the acceleration symbolically.
