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?

  • Physics Pre-Ap -

    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.

  • Physics Pre-Ap -

    19.6m
