Projectile Prediction!

Unit 2: Forces in Two Dimensions
Lesson 4 of 16

Objective: Given a projectile launched with a known starting velocity and angle, students will predict the horizontal position of a bucket to catch it.

Big Idea: For a projectile where air resistance can be ignored, its horizontal velocity is constant and its vertical velocity changes at 9.81 m/s^2
