A hunter points his rifle directly at a
coconut that he wishes to shoot off a tree.
It so happens
that the coconut falls from
the tree at the exact instant the hunter
pulls the trigger. Consequently,
A.
the bullet passes above the coconut.
B.
the bullet hits the coconut.
C.
the bullet passes beneath the coconut.
D.
This wasn’t discussed in Chapter 4.

Projectile Motion
What is the velocity (vector form) at
t
= 0, 2, and 3 seconds?
Projectile Motion
Projectile Motion
Projectile motion is made up of two independent motions:
uniform motion at constant velocity
in the horizontal
direction and
free

fall
motion in the vertical direction. The
