Demo: Independence of x- and y-Projectile Motion (Downhill)
Push the Smart Ballistic Cart on a level track: The ball is shot and caught. Then attach a string to the cart and put a mass hanging over a pulley to pull the cart on a level track: The ball is shot up and misses the cart because the cart has accelerated ahead. Finally, put the cart at the top of an inclined track and let the cart go: The ball is shot normal to the track and will be caught because the ball is accelerating at the same rate as the cart.
