Basic Concepts
The direction oF the motion depends only
on the horizontal and vertical components oF
the velocity at any moment.

b) What is its direction with respect to the
horizontal at this time?
Answer between
−
180
◦
and +180
◦
.
Correct answer: 51
.
8428
◦
.
Explanation:
The vertical component
v
y
is the side oppo
site the angle
θ
and the horizontal component
v
x
is the side adjacent to the angle, so
tan

=
v

The angle

Explanation:
Basic Concepts
The direction oF the motion depends only on
the horizontal and vertical components oF the

±or the horizontal motion,

Solution
±or the vertical motion,
