A bullet is shot horizontally with a speed of m/s from a height of 1.5 m.
How much time elapses before the bullet hits the ground?
How far does the bullet travel horizontally?
At a particular instant, a hot air balloon is m vertically above the ground, moving vertically downward at a constant speed of 2.0 m/s. At this exact instant, a girl throws a ball horizontally, relative to herself, with an initial speed of 20.0 m/s. When the balloon lands, what will be the horizontal distance between the girl and the ball? Ignore air resistance.
An aircraft is coming in for a landing at 300 meters height when its propeller falls off. The aircraft is flying at 40.0 m/s horizontally. Neglecting air resistance, with what translational velocity does the propeller hit the ground?
An athlete can jump a distance of 8.0 m in the broad jump. What is the maximum distance the athlete can jump on the Moon, where the gravitational acceleration is one-sixth that of Earth?
Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints can throw a football 23.0 m/s (50 mph). If he angles the throw at from the horizontal, what distance does it go if it is to be caught at the same elevation as it was thrown?
