# Problem 4-54 - Projectile - Part 2 - B

A child throws a snowball straight toward a tree with a horizontal velocity of $18\; m/s$. The tree is $9.0\; m$ away and the snowball starts from a height of $1.5\; m$ above the ground.

(a) How long will the snowball take to reach the tree?
(b) At what height above the ground will the snowball hit the tree?
(c) What is the snowball's velocity as it hits the tree?
[Ans. (a) $0.50\; s$   (b) $0.3\; m$   (c) $19\; m/s\; 15^\circ$ down from the horizontal]

Accumulated Solution

No. It is not a very bad choice, but all $x$-distances and velocities would be negative which is a bit unnatural.

Try again.
