Well it's still a shame to lose a mark like that. It's not like he couldn't figure it out. Exams just make people freeze sometimes. And that one mark could make a difference due to the percentage calculation for all our scores.eX-Bhai said:Hm, I see you have forgotten Galileo's analysis of projectile motion. The vertical component is INDEPENDENT of the horizontal component. So, in essence the horizontal velocity is kept constant (where it undergoes no acceleration), but the vertical acceleration changes (depending on its position on earth). So yeh, good try though, it sounds like something I'd do. But sadly, its wrong. Don't get too worried about it though - its only one mere mark.
