There is no horizontal force on the ball. So why would its horizontal velocity change? It does not, until it hits the ground or is headed or kicked. u =30 cos 30 Q : How long is it in the air? A : Twice as long as it takes to stop moving up at the top of its trajectory Q : How...

A spring-loaded toy dart is used to shoot a dart straight up in the air, and the dart reaches a maximum height of 16m. The same dart is shot straight up a second time from the same gun, but this time the spring is compressed only half as far before firing. How far up does the ...

Newtons first law: it continues in a straight path, or in the direction it was moving at the time of release. That path is tangent to the circle it was moving in.
