Problem 23E

A 124-kg balloon carrying a 22-kg basket is descending with a constant downward velocity of 20.0 m/s. A 1.0-kg stone is thrown from the basket with an initial velocity of 15.0 m/s perpendicular to the path of the descending balloon as measured relative to a person at rest in the basket. The person in the basket sees the stone hit the ground 6.00 s after being thrown. Assume that the balloon continues its downward descent with the same constant speed of 20.0 m/s. (a) How high was the balloon when the rock was thrown out? (b) How high is the balloon when the rock hits the ground? (c) At the instant the rock hits the ground, how far is it from the basket? (d) Just before the rock hits the ground, find its horizontal and vertical velocity components as measured by an observer (i) at rest in the basket and (ii) at rest on the ground.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 23E Step 1: In this question , we need to find the Height of the balloon when rock is thrown is out Height of the balloon when rock hits the ground Distance of balloon from rock when it hits the ground Horizontal and vertical component of the rock just before it hits the ground (1) At rest in the basket (2) at rest on the ground
