Physics - VERY IMPORTANT

Describe an experiment that shows that the rate at which an object falls is not affected by any horizontal motion it may have. EXPLAIN CLEARLY PLEASE!!


thank you

Take a dart gun, shoot it horizontally, and at the same time, drop a dart. See which one gets to the floor first.

why would they fall at the same time???

can u tell me why it would fall at the same time??

yes, because although their horizontal velocity is different, there vertical velocity is the same -9.81 m/s^2 since they are unaffected by eachother they will fall at the same rate thus hitting the ground at the same time
