    13 m/s

    19 m/s

    14 m/s

  • Q14

    A gun is held horizontally and fired. At the same time the bullet leaves the gun's barrel an identical bullet is dropped from the same height. Neglect air resistance. Which bullet will hit the ground with the greatest velocity?

    The bullet that was dropped, as it only has vertical distance to travel.

    The bullet that was dropped because it falls for a longer time

    It will be a tie because the acceleration of gravity is the same for both.

    The bullet that was fired, because it feels the force of gravity over a longer distance.

  • Q15

    What is true about projectile motion?

    The horizontal and vertical motions are independent.

    The force on the projectile is always vertically downward.

    The acceleration varies as the projectile rises towards its maximum height.

    The acceleration of the projectile is constant throughout the flight.
