When a projectile is thrown upwards at an angle, different variables will influence:
- the height the projectile reaches, y
- the distance is travels, x, and
- the total time it remains in the air, t.
In this activity you will look at how different factors influence the motion of a projectile when it is launched at an angle. You will be looking at the effect that mass, initial velocity, and launch angle has on the projectile's maximum height, range and final velocity. As well, you will investigate which factors are influenced by the presence of air resistance.
