The problem is about the motion in a plane.
The motion of a particle in a plane can be solved easily by resolving the motion in two mutually perpendicular directions and solving them separately. Time will ...

Solution Summary

The balls from the top of a table with a given horizontal speed. The horizontal distance moved during falling and the velocity of the impact is calculated.
