Drew drops a cherry pit out the car window 1.0 m above the ground while traveling down the road at 18 m/s.

(a) How far, horizontally, from the initial dropping point will the pit hit the ground?

(b) Draw or describe a picture of the situation.

(c) If the car continues to travel at the same speed, where will the car be in relation to when the pit lands?

  1. They probably expect you to ignore air resistance, but in the real world it would have a large effect upon where a cherry pit lands. You are talking about 65 miles per hour.

    If you choose to ignore air resistance, multiply 18 m/s by the time it takes to drop one meter.
