Ballistic Pendulum1. What is the ejection speed of a ball if it was shot horizontally 1 meter abovethe floor, and touched it 2.5 meters further from the vertical projection of theejection point? Use 9.810 m/s^2 for the acceleration of gravity.This is a projectile motion problem.The 4 basic equations are:y = y0+V0y t -1/2 gt2Vy = V0y gtx = x0 + V0xtVx = V0xFrom the problem, we have y0 = 1 m, y=0, V0y =0, x0 = 0, and x = 2.5 m, g=9.81m/s2, we need to find vx0, the third equation is the one we want to use, but weneed t to find V0x, that can be found from the first equationy = y0+V0y t -1/2 gt20 = 1 -1/2 gt2t2 = 2/gt=2= 0.4515 sgthen use the third eq,x = x0 + V0xtV0x = x0/t = 5.537 m/s2. Identical shot from the apparatus of Problem 1 was caught by the pendulumbasket initially at rest. From angular momentum conservation, find the angularspeed of the system "pe
