Ball on a Slanted Table#

A ball is launched with an initial velocity of \(\vec{v_0}\) from one corner of a smooth, flat board. The angle launch is \(\theta\) = 16\(^{\circ}\). As shown, the board has a width of 2.3 \(m\) and is tilted up at a 20.0\(^{\circ}\) angle.

A table of width d is slanted at 20 degrees. A ball is launched from the bottom left corner towards the bottom right corner at and angle theta.

Question Text#

Determine the initial speed \(v_0\) required to make the ball land at the adjacent corner labelled as “Target”.

Answer Section#

Please enter in a numeric value in \(m/s\).
