Objective: To demonstrate an understanding of the manner in which
position and velocity change over the course of a projectile’s
trajectory.
If you miss a question, then you will eventually be given a very

Trajectory
Horizontally Launched Projectiles

Version 1.2

g = -10 m/s/s

You will do three things: (1) Select the proper motion diagram for
a projectile. (2) Determine the velocity components at 1-second
intervals of time. And (3) Determine the displacement components at
1-second intervals of time.

Trajectory for Horizontally
Launched Projectiles
The number of questions vary and depend on the progress demonstrated by
the student.

In this activity you will have to use the gravitational
acceleration (g) to perform calculations. The value of g is -9.8 m/s/s.
However, some Physics classes will round g to -10 m/s/s in order to
shorten the calculating time and complexity with only minimal
sacrifices to accuracy. This Concept Builder is equipped to use either
value of g … so it’s your choice.
Which value of g do you wish to use?
