A particle moves from rest with a horizontal velocity of 30 meters per second, and is subject to a vertical uniform acceleration of 9.81 meters/sec2 downwards. Find its distance from the starting point at the end of ten seconds.
t=s/v where t= time, s= distance, v= velocity
The Attempt at a Solution
The mass of the object is not given, which one would assume means it is irrelevant, as all objects fall under the constant of 9.81m/s2. Since the particle moves from rest to 30m/s, Vinitial=0. The problem must be separated into its constituents, what is occurring on the y axis, and x axis. However, nothing is given about whether the particle begins moving at an angle, or whether it initiates movement from an elevated position.
I'm stuck here. Any suggestions?
