1. Homework Statement
Kellie’s toy car is sliding across the top of a table, which is 0.953 meters high. If the toy car slides off the table and hits the floor a distance of 3.13 meters from the base of the table

How long did it take for the toy car to hit the floor? 0.441 s
-Correct

With what horizontal velocity was the toy car moving when it left the table top?


2. Homework Equations

Vox = Vx
X=VoxT

Vy=Voy + at
y=voyt + 1/2at^2
Vy^2 = Voy^2 + 2ay

Well, it in the time that it took to fall (0.441 s), it moved a horizontal distance of 3.13 m. What does that tell you about its horizontal speed?
