  • Projectile Motion
    • Downward acceleration- only affects the vertical velocity
    • The only force acting on a projectile during flight is gravity
    • Optimum angle= 45 degrees
    • Projectile- an object thrown or dropped that has gravity acting upon it
      • Projectile velocity
        • Defined by two vectors
        • No air resistance
        • Vertical velocity
          • Increases due to acceleration by gravity
        • Horizontal velocity remains constant
    • Trajectory- path of an object through space
