Projectile motion coin flick question

  1. May 16, 2015 #1
    Question: if i take two coins, one heavier than the other and flick them from a table with the exact same horizontal velocity will they both land at the same time? if so why does this happen?

    Yeah, please don't delete the Homework Help Template that you are provided when you post schoolwork questions here. The template is meant to help you organize your thoughts, and show us what you have done on the problem.

    So, what are the Relevant Equations in this problem? Something about force and mass and acceleration, I would think. And are you wanting to neglect air resistance, or include it? What difference would that make? What are the basic equations for projectile motion with a constant gravitational acceleration downward? :smile:
