Problem 3.9: Projectile motion problem
Please wait for the animation to completely load.
A projectile is launched with an initial speed of 20 m/s as shown in the animation (position is given in meters). Restart. The time display is suppressed, but you can still click-drag to get coordinates. A line is also shown that represents the initial direction of the velocity.
- What is the launch angle?
- What are v0x and v0y?
- What is the maximum height the projectile will reach?
- How long does it take the projectile to reach that height?
- What is the total time that the projectile is in the air?
