,- I , Optional Problems dealing with constant acceleration (Not to be handed in.) (The first 3 are taken from the textbook by Halliday and Resnick) 1 .. Electrons, like all forms of matter, fall under the influence of gravity. 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. In a detective story, a body is found 15 ft from the base of a building and beneath an open window 80 ft above .. Would you guess the death to be accidental or not? Why? 4.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
