In which direction ball will move?

  1. Mar 18, 2013 #1
    hello friends, a ball experiences uniform motion due to inertia and gravitational force which is acting downwards. Both these forces are perpendicular. So given these conditions,in which direction the ball will move? I think with the help of trigonometry we can solve this.. Since there are two direction force are acting,i think ball will move in net direction.. But i don't know which net direction...

    Welcome to the forum. I see you are a first time poster. Can you check the rules for posting homework questions...

    In particular please post the whole question as set and an attempt at the solution.

    EDIT: There are several ways to answer your question as posed. The simplest is "In a parabolic arc".
