A Word About Forces

xo = 1.664ft

yo = 50.00ft

zo = 6.597ft

vxo = -6.791ft/s

vyo = -123.055ft/s

vzo = -5.721ft/s

ax = 13.233ft/s2

ay = 25.802ft/s2

az = -17.540ft/s2

Problem 6: Given the weight of a baseball is 0.320lbs, find the x, y, and z components of the force exerted on the ball by the air during its flight.

Use Newton’s Second Law along each direction.  Along x and y the only force is due to the air,

Fx = ?

Fy = ?

Fz = ?

Fx = 0.132lbs

Fy = 0.257lbs

Fz = ?
