1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data In a local bar, a customer slides an empty beer mug down the counter for a refill. The bartender is momentarily distracted and does not see the mug, which slides off the counter and strikes the floor at distance d from the base of the counter. The height of the counter is h. With what speed did the mug leave the counter? Which I got Vinitial=d/sqrroot(2h/g). Now my question is what was the direction of the mugs velocity just before it hit the floor? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution Would I have to break something up into components?
