**Unit 3: Motion in
Two-Dimensions**

**Problem Set D**

**Problem 10: **

(Referring to the previous problem.) To what height (in meters) will such a punt rise above the ground?

- Read the problem carefully and diagram the physical situation (trajectory diagram)
- Identify known and unknown information in an organized manner (x-y table)
- Take the time to plot out a strategy prior to beginning the solution
- Identify an appropriate formula to use
- Perform step-by-step algebraic manipulations

A discussion of the formulae for projectile motion, of the trajectory characteristics and of the basic strategy for solving such problems is provided on the Set D Overview Page.

Detailed information about and discussion of the strategies for solving non-horizontally launched projectile problems is provided online at The Physics Classroom.
