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 similar question. You can use the Help button at any time.

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?
