A crow is flying horizontally with a constant speed of 3.05 m/s when it releases a clam from its beak. The clam lands on the rocky beach 2.05 s later. Consider the moment just before the clam lands. (Neglect air resistance.)
(a) What is its horizontal component of velocity?
neglecting air friction, the horizontal velocity is the same as when the bird was carrying it.
