TRUE/FALSE
F 1. The horizontal motion of a horizontally launched projectile affects its vertical motion.
Answer: F
As a projectile launched horizontally has no initial vertical velocity, its vertical motion is
similar to that of a dropped object.
Points: 1 / 1
Reference: Page 148
T 2. A ball that is dropped will hit the ground at the same time as a ball that is thrown horizontally with an
initial velocity of 2 m/s.
Answer: T
Horizontal motion is independent of vertical motion.

MULTIPLE CHOICE
D 3. The path of a projectile through space is called its:
a. equilibrant c. range
b. torque d. trajectory
Answer: D
A projectile is any object that has been given an initial thrust and moves through air. Its path
through space is called its trajectory.

D 4. A soldier throws a grenade horizontally from the top of a cliff. Which of the following curves best
describes the path taken by the grenade?
a. Circle c. Hyperbola
b. Ellipse d. Parabola
Answer: D
Draw a motion diagram for the trajectory showing the downward acceleration. The velocity
will have two components, a horizontal and a vertical component. The combination of
constant horizontal velocity and uniform vertical acceleration produces a distinct trajectory.

C 5. A stone is thrown horizontally from the top of a 25.00-m cliff. The stone lands at a distance of 40.00 m
from the edge of the cliff. What is the initial horizontal velocity of the stone?
a. 2.260 m/s c. 17.70 m/s
b. 15.60 m/s d. 22.05 m/s
Answer: C
Solve the equation for the time the stone is in the air. Then solve the equation for the initial
horizontal velocity by substituting the values of time and the range.

B 6. A player kicks a football at an angle of 30.0 above the horizontal. The football has an initial velocity of
20.0 m/s. Find the horizontal component of the velocity and the maximum height attained by the football.
a. 10.0 m/s, 17.6 m c. 25.1 m/s, 7.40 m
b. 17.3 m/s, 5.10 m d. 30.3 m/s, 9.50 m
Answer: B
Write expressions for the vertical and horizontal velocity components. Solve the velocity
equation for the time of maximum height. Substitute this time into the equation for vertical
position to find the height.

D 7. A strobe-light series of pictures is taken of a red ball and a blue ball. The red ball was allowed to drop
straight down, and the blue ball was given an initial horizontal velocity. Lines are drawn connecting each
red ball image with the corresponding blue ball image. Describe the lines connecting the images.
a. The lines slope down from the red ball to the corresponding blue ball.
b. The lines slope up from the red ball to the corresponding blue ball.
c. The lines are vertical.
d. The lines are horizontal.
Answer: D
Horizontal motion is independent of vertical motion.

8. Two grenades, A and B, are thrown horizontally with different speeds from the top of a cliff 30 m high.
The speed of A is 2.60 m/s and the speed of B is 3.20 m/s. Both grenades remain in air for 2.47 s. Assume
that the acceleration due to gravity is 9.86 m/s

. What is the distance between A and B if they are thrown
along the same straight line?
Response: 1.48
Answer: 1.48
