TrajectoryA projectile travels in a curved path called _________
Horizontal & Vertical motionThe curved path of a projectile is a combination of ___________ and __________ ________
Horizontal component of a projectile's motionequal distances in equal intervals of time
Vertical component of a projectile's motionIf projected upward, the vertical distances of travel become less with time on the way up
Curved path of a projectileA combination of horizontal & vertical motion
The horizontal component of velocity for a projectile is completely independent of the vertical component of velocity when air drag is small enough to ignoreREAD THIS
