A shotput thrower
releases the shot with a release speed
of 15m/s and a release angle of 42°
horizontal. The initial height that the thrower releases the shot is 2 m
. In all the
problems, neglect the effect of air resistance.
What is the maximum height reached by the shot (relative to the ground)?
How long is the shot in the air for?
How far doe
s the shot travel
What is the vertical velocity just before the shot lands on the ground?
