A customer slides an empty coffee mug down the counter. The employee is momentarily distracted and does not see the mug, which slides off the counter and strikes the floor 1.9m from the base of the counter. The height of the counter is .840m.
a. With what velocity did the mug leave the counter?
b. What was the direction of the mug's velocity just before it hit the floor?
The Attempt at a Solution
a. I'm not sure how to find the velocity. Would I use one of the kinematic equations?
360-23.85=336 below the horizontal axis
Thank you very much
