A projectile launched at an angle of 45o above the horizontal travels through the air. Compared to the projectile​theoretical path with no air friction, the actual trajectory of the projectile with air s friction is lower and shorter higher and longer lower and longer higher and shorter

The diagram below represents the path of a stunt car that is driven off a cliff, neglecting friction.

Compared to the horizontal component of the car​velocity at point A, the horizontal component of s the car​velocity at point B is s greater the same smaller

Two spheres, A and B, are simultaneously projected horizontally from the top of a tower. Sphere A has a horizontal speed of 40 meters per second and sphere B has a horizontal speed of 20 meters per second. Which statement best 2 describes the time required for the spheres to reach the ground and the horizontal distance they travel? [Neglect friction and assume the ground is level.] Both spheres hit the ground at the same time and at the same distance from the base of the tower. Sphere A hits the ground before sphere B, and sphere A lands twice as far as sphere B from the base of the tower. Both spheres hit the ground at the same time, but sphere B lands twice as far as sphere A from the base of the tower. Both spheres hit the ground at the same time, but sphere A lands twice as far as sphere B from the base of the tower.

A 3.5-kilogram block is dropped from the roof of a 36-meter tall building at the same time a 9.8kilogram ball is thrown horizontally from the same height at a speed horizontal velocity of 2.5 meters per second. Which statement best describes the motion of the block and the motion of the ball? [Neglect air resistance.] The block and the ball hit the ground at the same time because they have the same vertical acceleration. The 3.5-kg block hits the ground first because it has no horizontal velocity. The 9.8-kg ball hits the ground first because it is round. The 9.8-kg ball hits the ground first because it has more mass.

The time it takes a 3.5-kilogram block to it the ground is The horizontal range of the 9.8-kilogram ball is meters.

A machine fired several projectiles at the same angle, θ, above the horizontal. Each projectile was fired with a different initial velocity, vi. The graph below represents the relationship between the magnitude of the initial vertical velocity, viy , and the magnitude of the corresponding initial velocity, vi, of these projectiles.

The magnitude of the initial vertical velocity of the projectile, viy , when the magnitude of its initial velocity, vi, was 40. meters per second is most nearly m/s. o

Determine the angle, θ, above the horizontal at which the projectiles were...
