A crow is flying horizontally with a constant speed of 2.50 m/s when it releases a clam from its beak. The clam lands on the rocky beach 2.20 s later. Consider the moment just before the clam lands. (Neglect air resistance.)

A) What is its horizontal component of velocity?
B) What is its vertical component of velocity?

*Both in m/s

  • Physics -

    A) 2.5m/s
    B) 9.8 * 2.2 = 21.56 m/s
