Describe an experiment that shows that the rate at which an object falls is not affected by any horizontal motion it may have. EXPLAIN CLEARLY PLEASE!!

thank you

Take a dart gun, shoot it horizontally, and at the same time, drop a dart. See which one gets to the floor first.

why would they fall at the same time???

can u tell me why it would fall at the same time??

yes, because although their horizontal velocity is different, there vertical velocity is the same -9.81 m/s^2 since they are unaffected by eachother they will fall at the same rate thus hitting the ground at the same time
