Trajectory - Angle Launched Projectiles

Horizontal and vertical speeds change as projectiles move through space. As part of a series on vectors and projectiles, scholars create vector diagrams to compare these speeds at various locations. They they determine the values for each component of velocity as it relates to specific time in seconds.
