I think this physics problem deals only with horizontal projection...let me know what you think:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A block slides off a horizontal surface with speed Vo. Write an expression relating y, distance fallen, to X, the horizontal distance traveled.

i think i can use the horizontal proj. equations:

R=VoT (I think you can substitute X for R)

h=.5gt^2 (I think you can substitute y for h)

I get a combined equation of y=.5g(x/Vo)^2..which simplfied b/c .5g=4.9

Y/4.9=(X/Vo)^2....which i think can simplify to the

(square root of y/4.9)=X/Vo
