A cart that is rolling at constant velocity on a level table fires a ball straight up. When the ball comes back down, will it land in front of the launching tube, behind the launching tube, or directly in the tube? Explain.
The Attempt at a Solution
Why does it land right back into the cart. That is super counterintuitive for me. I feel like the only forces on it if we don't include air friction is gravity. Therefore shouldn't it land behind the cart?
