Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Jen on Saturday, September 17, 2011 at 11:51am.

I have a projectile motion question. If let's say a cannon which was placed on a moving cart with negligible friction projects a cannonball straight up in the air where will it fall? Would it be behind the cannon, on the rider or fall straight down back into the cannon?
And what is the horizontal velocity of the ball relative to the rider of the cart?
