Problem 44

The free throw line in basketball is 4.57 m (15 ft) from the basket, which is 3.05 m (10 ft) above the floor. A player standing on the free throw line throws the ball with an initial speed of 8.15 m/s, releasing it at a height of 2.44 m (8 ft) above the floor. At what angle above the horizontal must the ball be thrown to exactly hit the basket? Note that most players will use a large initial angle rather than a flat shot because it allows for a larger margin of error. Explicitly show how you follow the steps involved in solving projectile motion problems.

Lecture 14 objectives NOTE: I combined some of the objective, they were very similar/the same question that were more easily answered in a blurb then individually. 1. What are cardiac and smooth muscles Cardiac muscles are found only in the heart and consist of small cells with striations and are under involuntary control Smooth Muscles are found in the wall of hollow organs and consist of small elongated call that are NOT satiated and are under involuntary control 2. How do skeletal, cardiac and smooth muscle differ anatomically/Describe the anatomy of cardiac and smooth muscle cells/Compare and contrast the 3 different muscle cells/How do differences in muscle cells anatomy affect function Cardiac muscle cells​ are connected by intercalated discs (Gap junctions and desmosomes). All contract (via gap junctions) allowing for functional Functional Syncytium. ​ They have a branched pattern and are multinucleated. Many MORE mitochondria - your heart can not just stop beating because it is tired. Smaller T-tubules and sarcoplasmic reticulum because there is a high percentage of calcium coming from gap junctions. Arranged in thick bundles with heart wall - shorter and thicker than skeletal muscles. Aerobic Respiration. Autorhythmic pacemaker is responsible for rhythmic heart beat - some (not all) cadic mycotes. Smooth Muscle cells​ are surrounded by a sarcolemma which is covered in small indents that store calcium (Like t-tubules of smooth muscle). They have a highly developed cytoskeletal system consisting of many dense bodies, som
