Unit Vector Notation
path the projectile follows
What component do the horizontal and vertical components of a projectile share?
what is a projectile?
Objects that are thrown into the air and subject to gravity
true or false: horizontal speed is affected by vertical acceleration
in projectiles fired at an angle,
since they don't affect each other, you can split horizontal and vertical
the parabola is symmetric
g= 9.8 m/s^2 on earth
vx is constant
vy at top of trajectory is o m/s^2
why do you get a parabola?
because x is unchanging and y is increasing
