Question

A 3.00 kg ball is dropped from rest from the roof of a building 176.4 m high. While the ball is falling, a horizontal wind exerts a constant force of 12.0 N on the ball. How far from the building does the ball hit the ground?

Solution

VerifiedStep 1

1 of 3Initially the ball didn't have any horizontal component of velocity. The acceleration on the ball due to the horizontal force is,

$a=\dfrac{F}{m}$.

If $s$ is the horizontal distance traveled, then we have,

$s=\dfrac{1}{2}at^2$

where, $t$ is the time of flight.
