PROJECTILE MOTION

Student Learning Objectives
After completing this unit:
  • I can calculate positions, velocities, and times for motion with constant velocity in two dimensions
  • I can calculate positions, velocities, and times for motion with constant acceleration in two dimensions
  • I can apply the kinematics equations for two-dimensional motion to a projectile launched at an angle
