perpendicular to each other.

T F Why?

T F Why?
18. The vertical component of velocity changes direction
during the flight.
13. At the maximum height, the vertical component of

19. The horizontal component of velocity changes
direction during the flight.
14. A scientist in the back of a moving rollercoaster is
going 120.0 m/s throws a baseball perpendicular to the
path of the rollercoaster. The speed with which the ball is
thrown is 40.0 m/s. What is the velocity of the ball the
instant it is released from the hand of the scientist?

T F Why?

## Draw a right triangle.

20. The vertical component of velocity is not affected by
gravity.
