Worksheet: Projection on a Uniform Slope
In this worksheet, you will practice solve problems about the motion of a projectile on an inclined plane and describing the projectile velocity, acceleration and position vectors in terms of the unit vectors i, and j parallel and perpendicular to that plane.
An archer shot an arrow with a speed of 80 m/s at an angle of above the horizontal. Calculate the arrow’s horizontal range . Also calculate its vertical height above the launch point when it was at a distance of 46 m from the archer. Give your answers in metres correct to one decimal place. Consider the acceleration due to gravity to be 9.8 m/s2.
