Question

Suppose that you loft the ball with an initial speed of v = 16.1 m/s, at an angle of θ = 51.8° above the horizontal. At this instant your opponent is d = 10.7 m away from the ball. He begins moving away from you 0.300 s later, hoping to reach the ball and hit it back at the moment that it is h = 2.02 m above its launch point. With what minimum average speed must he move? (Ignore the fact that he can stretch, so that his racket can reach the ball before he does.)

    Chinook salmon can cover more distance in less time by periodically making jumps out of the water. Suppose a salmon swimming in still water jumps out of the water with velocity 6.03 m/s at 40.6° above the horizontal, re-enters the water a distance L upstream, and then swims the same distance L underwater in a straight, horizontal line with velocity 2.92 m/s before jumping out again. What is the fish's average horizontal velocity (in m/s) between jumps? (Round your answer to at least 2 decimal places.) Consider the interval of time necessary to travel 2L. How is this reduced by the combination of jumping and swimming compared with just swimming at the constant speed of 92m/s? Express the reduction as a percentage. What If? Some salmon are able to jump a distance Lout of the water while only swimming a distance L/4 between jumps. By what percentage are these salmon faster than those requiring an underwater swim of distance L? (Assume the salmon jumps out of the water with velocity 03m/s…
