Demo: Independence of x- and y-Projectile Motion (Uphill)
Push the Smart Ballistic Cart on a level track: The ball is shot and caught. Then push the cart on a level track but put a friction block in the cart's way: The ball is shot up and misses the cart because the cart has slowed down. Finally, push the cart up an inclined track: The ball is shot and will be caught by the cart, even if the ball is launched before the cart reaches the top and is caught as the cart is on its way back down the track.
