Two identical objects start at the same height above level ground. Simultaneously, object A is dropped and object B is launched horizontally with a speed of 20 m/s. Assume that air resistance is negligible.

b) Which object hits the ground with the greatest speed, or do they hit the ground with the same speed?


c) If the two objects started at a height of 5.0 m above the ground, how far apart would they land?
