Now that we have dropped the ball into the bucket, we can determine the final velocity of the ball right before it strikes the bucket. Don't forget that velocity is a vector and has both magnitude and direction. Yep, component vector review!
0:34 Finding the final velocity in the y direction.
1:52 We need to find the hypotenuse!
2:28 Finding the final velocity in the x direction.
2:57 Finding the magnitude of the final velocity.
4:06 Finding the direction of the final velocity.
5:08 The number answer.
5:52 Visualizing the answer.
6:28 Why is the ball always right below mr.p's hand?
7:07 Doesn't the ball travel farther than mr.p's hand?
7:33 The Review.
