Here is your chance to apply what
you've learned in this chapter.

We
first studied projectile motion. We learned that all
falling objects follows the same path. Then we
analyzed periodic motion, which repeats itself. The
force that causes an object to make a circular path
is called the centripetal force.

direction?

m/s

b. What was the initial velocity on y
direction?

m/s
