Hi guys, I'm new to the forums so I hope I am putting these questions in the appropriate place. I tried to look around a bit before hand and make sure I found the proper place, but my apologies ahead of time if I am somehow off in that regard. On to the questions.....and thanks ahead of time for ANY help! Q#1- You fire 3 shots from your gun (let's label the shots A,B,C). One straight up (A), one straight down (B) and one horizontally (C). Assuming you shoot from the hip (i.e. your hand is in the same place each time, right by your holster) and you ignore air resistance, A.) Which of the 3 bullets will have the greatest speed as it reaches the ground and why? B.) Now include air resistance, how does your answer change and why? **These were questions on a quiz I have already taken and did poorly on, I'm trying to go back over all my quizzes to prepare for next weeks final exam, I also have the opportunity to re-do one quiz and turn it in today!** My original answer for part A was that bullet A would have the greatest speed because it's falling a greater distance and can gain speed over that distance. I was using the equation v^2=2gh to show this saying that the "h-height" value would be greatest for bullet A so it had to have the greatest speed. Now, I'm thinking perhaps they all have the same speed? or maybe it's bullet B that is the fastest since it's shot straight down and has the force of the gun directly behind it, but I'm not sure if I am headed in the right direction or just further confusing myself, and I don't know how I can explain either in "physics" terms. Please help if you can offer any advice, suggestions, etc. Thanks!
