A ball moving at a speed of 2.0 m/s rolls off a horizontal table. If the table is 1.2 m high, how far does the ball travel horizontally in m when it strikes the floor

  • physics -

    How far away did the ball land from the table?

    t=D/S
    t= 1.2m÷2m/s
    t= 0.6 s

    D=1/2 at^2
    D=0.5*(9.8 m/s/s) * 0.6^2
    D= 4.9 m/s/s * 0.36
    D= 1.764m

    rounded to sig. figures: 1.8 m
