One bullet is fired horizontally and another bullet is dropped from rest from the same initial height.   If air resistance is negligible and this is done near the surface of the earth, which hits the ground first?  Check your answer by viewing the simulation.

Which bullet hit the ground with the greater vertical speed, or do they hit with the same vertical speed?

Which has a greater speed when hitting the ground?  Remember that speed is the magnitude of velocity.
