PHYSICS PROBLEMS: Kinematics

As an illustration, here is a problem with its solution for you to see how it is sent 
by email.

Some artillery men place an old cannon over the sea level at the top of a cliff. 
The projectile is shooted horizontally with an initial velocity Vi. The cannon is 
60 m above the sea level. The time taken since the instant the projectile is shot 
until its impact is heard by the artillery men, is 4.0 s. Knowing that the sound 
velocity in the air is 340 m/s, calculate the horizontal distance x from the impact 
point on the sea to the base of the cliff and the initial velocity Vi of the projectile.

	ANSWERS  :   x = 159 m; Vi = 45.4 m/s

Placing the origin of the coordinate system in the sea along with the cliff 
and making x to show  the horizontal distance and y for the altitude, we 
have:

	(A)   x = Vi cost
	
	(B)   y = yi + Vi sen t - (1/2)gt2.  yi  is the initial vertical position. 

In this case yi = 60 m, Vi  is the magnitude of the initial velocity,  is 
the angle that the initial velocity  vector makes with the x axis, in this 
case  = 0 because the shot is horizontal. So sen0 = 0  y cos0 = 1.

The time the projectile takes to reach the water is obtained doing y = 0.

	y = 0 = 60m + Visen0 t - (1/2)gt2.   Then,
	(1/2)gt2 = 60m,  from where t = 3,5 seconds. 

Then, the time the sound takes to travel the distance between the impact 
point and the cannon is 4s - 3,5s = 0,5s.

The distance between the impact point and the cannon is calculated using 
the known relation: distance = velocity*time = 340 m/s*0.5 s = 170 m. 
These 170 m form the hypotenuse of the rectangle triangle with 60 m and x 
as the sides, then

	x2 = (170m)2 - (60m)2.

Solving x in this triangle rectangle, x = 159 meters.

The initial velocity, when the shooting ocurred, can be calculated with the 
equation (A) 

x = Vi cos t
159m = Vi *1*3,5s
Then Vi = 45,4 m/s.
