From 9/5 Displacement, x (distance moved) Instantaneous Velocity, v (at a particular time) Average Velocity, v ave (average over time) Change in Velocity, v (speeding up or slowing down) Acceleration, a (how much the velocity changes each second)

Projectile Motion Example 1: An object is thrown straight up with a velocity of 4m/s. The acceleration is 9.8m/s 2 directed down. How long is the object in the air? How high does it get? What is its velocity when it gets back to the ground?

Projectile Motion Example 2: An object is dropped from rest from a height of 45m above the ground. The acceleration is 9.8m/s 2 directed down. How long is the object in the air?

The acceleration is 9.8m/s 2 directed down. The initial velocity of the ball is 10m/s right. How long is the object in the air? (same as previous) What is its velocity just before it gets to the ground? Projectile Motion 3-25 v o = 135m/s at 15 above/below the horizontal. What is the velocity, magnitude and direction, just before it hits the ground? Note: drawing is not perfectly accurate. Acceleration is 9.8m/s 2 down. Find initial components Find t to the highest point Find x to the highest point Add this to 2000m Find t to fall from highest point Find v y from highest point (this is v fy )...
