# Good movies of simultaneous ball drop/thrown?

In summary, the conversation revolves around teaching the concept of X vs. Y motion, with a desire to show a strobe movie of a ball being dropped versus thrown horizontally. The teacher emphasizes the idea of "seeing is believing" and the independence and constancy of X-motion. The conversation also touches on the difference between Y-axis force and X-axis force, and the misconception that weight does not affect friction. A suggestion is made to check out Mythbusters, specifically an episode where they demonstrate this concept with bullets dropped vs. fired.
We're teaching about X vs. Y motion, and I'd really love to show like a strobe movie of a ball being dropped versus thrown horizontally...or even just the one thrown horizontally.

We TELL students the X-motion is independent and constant, but "seeing is believing"

I found some pictures on the internet, but does anyone know of a movie clip showing this?

my teacher says too that y-axis force does not affect x axis, but, why is pushing something heavier than the other harder?
i checked up that weight does in fact affect friction. why are they lying? lol

Mythbusters did this with bullets dropped vs.fired. All I found on Youtube was an extremely short cut from the episode that leaves out most of the good stuff. The whole thing is on netflix though, if you have a subscription.
