Description:

This video demonstrates two balls being dropped simultaneously. One is given a horizontal velocity while the other simply falls. The experiment shows that only the vertical component determines the fall time, hence they fall with the same acceleration and simultaneously impact the table or the ground. This video may be viewed in steps, which is recommended for close examination of the process. This item is part of a collection of lecture demonstration videos compiled by the physics department at Wake Forest University.
