Independence of Vector Components
For 2-D projectile motion the vertical and horizontal motions are independent V Vy=10 m/s Vx=10 m/s

For 2-D projectile motion the vertical and horizontal motions are independent

Independence of Vector Components
2-14 A small plane takes off with a constant velocity of 150 km/hr (42 m/s) at an angle of 37 °. In 3.00 s , A) how high is the plane above the ground? B) What horizontal distance has it traveled?

Independence of Vector Components
2-13** A ball has an initial velocity of 1.3 m/s along the +y direction and starting at to receives an acceleration of 2.10 m/s2 in the +x direction. A) what is the position of the ball at 2.5 sec after to? B) What is the velocity of the ball at that time?
