The direction of the speed may not matter. but it is easier to reach a horizontal speed than uphill.
with a very short pulse time, no, it's the same. A rifle bullet comes out at the same speed no matter which direction you shoot. You have in the head the speed of a car, but precisely we are in the case of a gradual push, and the difference comes from the fact that you have to overcome the potential energy during the acceleration time when you go up, while you don't have to do it horizontally. with the same power expended at the start, the speed achieved includes the fact that you expended part of the energy to go up in one case, and not in the other.
But without friction, for example on the Moon, a bullet which would reach the speed of release will escape the attraction of the Moon whether it is fired vertically or horizontally ...
This centrifugal force is spinning in my head ...
If it is calculated from the center of the planet, horizontally it starts from the axis, while vertically it starts at a distance from the center equal to the radius, it could leave less quickly to be released?
Trying to do calculations (imagining starting from the center at the release speed with a deceleration of 1g, I come to a stop at the surface *) I find that the release speed is equal to the acceleration (g ) over the distance of the radius.
Same result on earth or on the moon ...
* I know this is wrong because in the center we must be in a situation of weightlessness, but this consistency intrigues me ...?
ps: the bullet, upwards it has its acceleration due to the thrust minus g, downwards more g, little difference indeed ...
centrifugal force is not a "real" force, it depends on the frame of reference. It only exists when you locate the movement in relation to a frame of reference whose axes are rotating.
If you look at the movement of a satellite around the Earth in a frame of reference whose axes are fixed (pointing towards the stars), there is no centrifugal force. There is a centripetal force (gravitation) and a rotational movement around the Earth due to this force.
If you look at it in a frame of reference whose axes rotate with the satellite (which is the case when you place a camera in the space station, because the "frame" is the station itself and the axes rotate with it), then it there is a centrifugal force which balances gravity .. and everything seems still!
both points of view are valid, but they should not be mixed. This is why in Mechanics the first thing to do is to define the frame of reference against which you locate the movement.
For example in a frame of reference linked to the Earth, the Moon revolves around the Earth. But in a frame of reference linked to the Sun, well it turns .. around the Sun!
