The problem states; A projectile is fired horizontally with an initial speed of 50m/s. neglect air resistance. What is the magnitude of the displacement of the projectile 3 seconds after it is fired? What is the speed of the projectil 3 seconds after it is fired? I used this equation to get my X component: X=Vox(t)+(1/2)(-9.8m/s^2)(t^2) and I got 105.9m. I also did this for the Y component I used 50m/s for initial velocity and I think that is what my mistake is, because when I use the pathagorean theorm I don't get the correct answer. Can anyone help?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
