    1. Why is it possible to consider the vertical and horizontal motion of a projectile independently of each other.

    2. A mortar shell fired with an angle of elevation of 50 degrees ahs a range of 2.5 km. Neglecting air resistance determine:

    a. The time of flight.
    b. The shells initial velocity.
    c. The shells range and height 30 s after firing.
    d. The other range at which the height was the same as calculated in part c above.

    1. Why is it possible to consider the vertical and horizontal motion of a projectile independently of each other?

    Answer: The horizontal and vertical motion of a projectile are considered undependably of each other because there is no horizontal acceleration on the projectile while the vertical acceleration is equal to g (acceleration due to gravity). So the horizontal velocity of the particle remains constant while the vertical velocity changes due to acceleration g .

    2. A mortar shell fired with an angle of elevation of 50degrees has a range of ...
