question about "vertical" and "horizaontal" 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data the terms "vertical" and "horizontal" are frequently used in physics. give operational definitions for these two terms. an operational definition defines a term by how it is measured or determined. your definition should apply equally well in a laboratory orr on a stepp mountainside. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution "vertical"- direction perpendicular to the plane on which an object is located "horizaontal" - parallel to the plane on which an object is located im not really sure if this is right is there a better way to define them?
