Equations
Display the Projectile Motion Path. First set sliders for Height, Initial Velocity & Angle of Projection. Then show the Motion with Play button or Time slider. Check boxes for data on Range Velocity etc can be used. Equations for velocity and Displacement are displayed for the parameters selected.
Set the Initial Height, Velocity & Angle of projection and note the related changes in the equations for Horizontal (x) and Vertical (y) Velocity and Displacement. Note the velocity values at critical points such as max height and hitting the ground. Explore the difference made by adjusting the angle of projection, etc.
