A ball rolls along a 1.0m high horizontal table and then falls off of the edge of the table with a horizontal velocity of 4.0ms-1 Calculate:
a. time taken for the ball to reach the floor after it leaves the table (2 mark)

b.the horizontal distance travelled by the ball during its fall (2 mark)


2) A bullet is fired horizontally from a gun held 1.4m above the ground. If the bullet leaves the gun with a velocity of 300ms-1 at what distance from the gun will the bullet strike the ground? (3 mark)
