    A golf ball is hit horizontally and went off with initial velocity of 2 m/s at a hill top (h=1m) Find x, the horizontal distance traveled and velocity of the golf ball just before it hits the ground (incluiding direction)

    In the verical direction
    y= y0 + Vyo t + 1/2 at^2
    yo= 1 m
    y= 0 ( as at time t the ball hits the ground which is the origin)
    Vyo= initial velocity in y direction = 0 ( as there is no initial velocity imparted in the y direction)
    a= acceleration due to gravity = -9.81 ...

    Solution Summary

    Calculates the distance traveled and velocity of a golf ball that is hit horizontally.
