Vectors and Projectile Motion


  • Vectors
    • Magnitude and Direction
    • Adding and Subtracting
      • In one-dimension
      • In two-dimensions
        • Resolving Vectors
          • Components
        • Pythagorean Theorem
        • Trigonometric Functions (SOH-CAH-TOA)
    • Vector Addition is Commutative
  • Projectile Motion – Solely Affected by Gravity (ie NO air resistance)
    • Parabolic Motion
    • Horizontal Velocity is Constant
      • Δx = Vt
    • Vertical Velocity is Constantly Accelerating (gravity)
      • V = Vo + at
      • Δy = 1/2 (V + Vo)t
      • V^2 = Vo^2 + 2aΔy
      • Δy = Vot + 1/2 at^2
