## What happens to the horizontal velocity of a projectile as it goes up?

There are no **horizontal** forces acting upon **projectiles** and thus no **horizontal** acceleration, The **horizontal velocity of a projectile** is constant (a never changing in value), The vertical **velocity of a projectile** changes by 9.8 m/s each second, The **horizontal** motion of a **projectile** is independent of its vertical motion.

## How does horizontal velocity affect range?

**Horizontal** component (V_{h}) has certain **velocity** or magnitude. **Horizontal** component (V_{h}) remains constant throughout flight, neglecting air resistance. **Horizontal velocity** influences **range**, but not time object in air.

## How does horizontal velocity affect time?

A LARGER ANGLE MEANS A LONGER **TIME** OF FLIGHT, BUT LESS **HORIZONTAL VELOCITY**. A SMALLER ANGLE MEANS A LARGER **HORIZONTAL VELOCITY**, AND LESS FLIGHT **TIME**.

## What is the horizontal velocity at its highest point?

At a projectile’s highest point, its velocity is zero. At a projectile’s highest point, its **acceleration** is zero.

## How far does the ball travel horizontally before hitting the ground?

You can therefore conclude that the baseball **travels** 26.8 meters **horizontally before** reaching the **ground**.

## How do you find velocity with horizontal distance and height?

**Horizontal** projectile motion equations

As a result, we have only one component of initial **velocity** – Vx = V, whereas Vy = 0. **Horizontal distance** can be expressed as x = V * t. Vertical **distance** from the ground is described by the formula y = – g * t² / 2, where g is the gravity acceleration and h is an elevation.

## Why does horizontal velocity not affect time?

The **time** airborne is dependent only on the vertical component of **velocity**. If you launch an object **horizontally**, then it has **no** vertical component of **velocity** and its airborne **time** is only dependent on it’s height above ground when it’s launched: ta=√2h/g, where h is the height of the object when it is launched.

## Does angle affect velocity?

From the initial projectile **velocity** equations (for component axis) more **velocity** is applied to the vertical component **velocity** as the launch **angle** increases. While less than 45 degrees produces more horizontal **velocity** and less vertical **velocity**.

## What factors affect the horizontal distance of a projectile?

The horizontal distance depends on two factors: the horizontal **speed** (vox) and the time the projectile has been in the **air**. The horizontal distance is the product of these two quantities. The height of the projectile depends on the original vertical **speed** (voy) and the time that the projectile has been in the **air**.

## What is the horizontal component of velocity?

The **horizontal velocity component** (v_{x}) describes the influence of the **velocity** in displacing the projectile **horizontally**. The **vertical velocity component** (v_{y}) describes the influence of the **velocity** in displacing the projectile vertically.

## Does the initial velocity affect acceleration?

**Initial velocity** is independent of the slope of the graph; that is, the **acceleration**.

## How do you find horizontal velocity?

Divide Displacement by Time

Divide the **horizontal** displacement by time to **find** the **horizontal velocity**. In the example, V_{x} = 4 meters per second.

## What is the acceleration of the ball at its maximum height?

Question: A **ball** thrown vertically upward reaches a **maximum height** of 30 meters above the surface of Earth. At **its maximum height**, the speed of the **ball** is: Answer: 0 m/s. The instantaneous speed of any projectile at **its maximum height** is zero.

Objects Launched Upward.

Variable | Value |
---|---|

a | -9.8 m/s^{2} |

t | 0.40 s |

## How do you find velocity with maximum height?

**Determine** the time it takes for the projectile to reach its **maximum height**. Use the **formula** (0 – V) / -32.2 ft/s^2 = T where V is the initial vertical **velocity** found in step 2. In this **formula**, 0 represents the vertical **velocity** of the projectile at its peak and -32.2 ft/s^2 represents the acceleration due to gravity.

## What angle does his velocity make with the horizontal?

Answer Expert Verified

The **angle** when the **horizontal** and vertical components have the same magnitude is 45 degrees **angle**.
