You drop a stone from a position of rest.
How far will it fall vertically in the ﬁrst 2 s?
The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s
Answer in units of m
015 (part 2 of 2)
If you instead toss it horizontally at 2.7 m/s,
how far will it fall vertically in the ﬁrst 2 s?
s(t) = 1/2 at^2
plug in your a and t to get the distance
the stone falls at the same speed, regardless of its horizontal speed.
