Homework Help: physics

Posted by HK on Friday, February 18, 2011 at 12:43am.

If we are running on a threadmill with a speed such that I appear stationary and throw a ball, will the ball go further as compared to one who throws the ball while he is standing stationary.

The concern is that though I appear stationary while I am running on a threadmill, I do have a certain speed. Therefore the ball would have some initial horizontal speed.
