If an electron is projected horizontally with a speed of 3 x 10 7 mls (one-tenth the speed of light), how far will it fall in traversing a horizontal distance of 1.0 m? 2 A plane, diving at an angle of 53 degrees from vertical, releases a projectile at an altitude of 730 m The projectile hits the ground 5.0 s after being released. (a) Whatis the speed of the plane? (b) How far did the projectile travel horizontally during its flight? (c) What were the horizontal and vertical components of the velocity just before striking the ground? . 3.
