How do you calculate projectile motion?

When using these equations, keep these points in mind:The vectors vx, vy, and v all form a right triangle.You can express the horizontal distance traveled x = vx * t, where t refers to time.The formula for the vertical distance from the ground is y = vy * t – g * t^2 / 2, where g refers to the gravity acceleration.The horizontal acceleration is always equal to zero.More items...
