Mission VP9: Velocity Components for a Projectile


Mission VP9 requires that you interpret a velocity vector diagram and calculate the values of the x- and y-component of a projectile's velocity. The mission consists of 36 questions organized into 9 Question Groups. You must answer one question from each Question Group to complete the mission. The learning outcomes for this mission are ...
 

Learning Outcomes

  • The student should be able to interpret a velocity vector diagram for a projectile in order to predict the relative magnitude of the horizontal and vertical velocity components at various times during the trajectory.
  • The student should be able to determine the magnitudes of the horizontal and vertical velocity components of a projectile.
