A ball rolls of the table as shown in the animation above. (Click here to start the animation. Write the horizontal (x) and vertical (y) equations that specify the position of the ball after the ball leaves the table surface (i.e. starting at t=0). Note that the units in the animation are not standard units like meters or feet (i.e. your value for acceleration is probably not 9.8 m/s2). Your equations should be functions of t.
x(t) =
y(t) =
