Resolve vectors into their components and apply the kinematic equations to solve problems involving projectile motion. Copyright © by Holt, Rinehart and Winston. All rights reserved.

Concept Check – Projectile Motion A small cart is rolling at constant velocity on a flat track. It fires a ball straight up into the air as it moves. After it is fired, what happens to the ball? 1) it depends on how fast the cart is moving 2) it falls behind the cart 3) it falls in front of the cart 4) it falls right back into the cart 5) it remains at rest Copyright © by Holt, Rinehart and Winston.

After it is fired, what happens to the ball? 1) it depends on how fast the cart is moving 2) it falls behind the cart 3) it falls in front of the cart 4) it falls right back into the cart 5) it remains at rest when viewed from train when viewed from ground In the frame of reference of the cart, the ball only has a vertical vertical component of velocity. So it goes up and comes back down. To a ground observer, both the cart and the ball have the same horizontal velocity same horizontal velocity , so the ball still returns into the cart.

Concept Check – Projectile Motion (2) Now the cart is being pulled along a horizontal track by an external force (a weight hanging over the table edge) and accelerating. It fires a ball straight out of the cannon as it moves. After it is fired, what happens to the ball? 1) it depends upon how much the track is tilted 2) it falls behind the cart 3) it falls in front of the cart 4) it falls right back into the cart 5) it remains at rest Copyright © by Holt, Rinehart and Winston.

In fact, the ball does not have any horizontal acceleration at all (just like the first question), so it will lag behind the accelerating cart once it is shot out of the cannon.
