A dart gun is fired while being held horizontally at a height of 0.90 m above ground level and while it is at rest relative to the ground. The dart from the gun travels a horizontal distance of 4.00 m. A college student holds the same gun in a horizontal position while sliding down a 45.0° incline at a constant speed of 2.00 m/s. How far will the dart travel if the student fires the gun when it is 1.00 m above the ground?
On the first part, determine the horzontal velocity.
On the second, determine the vertical and horizontal components of the student, and add those to the dart velocity.
