## An Introductory Projectile Motion Problem with an Initial Horizontal Velocity Part 2 of 2 (7:57)

Now that we have dropped the ball into the bucket, we can determine the final velocity of the ball right before it strikes the bucket. Don’t forget that velocity is a vector and has both magnitude and direction. Yep, component vector review!
Content Times: 0:34 Finding the final velocity in the y direction. 1:52 We need to find the hypotenuse! 2:28 Finding the final velocity in the x direction. 2:57 Finding the magnitude of the final velocity. 4:06 Finding the direction of the final velocity. 5:08 The number answer. 5:52 Visualizing the answer. 6:28 Why is the ball always right below mr.p's hand? 7:07 Doesn’t the ball travel farther than mr.p’s hand? 7:33 The Review. |

Want to know how many attempts it really took to get the ball to land in the bucket?

Want proof that "air resistance decreased the x displacement of the ball by less than 1 cm"?
