Construct motion diagrams showing the velocity and acceleration of a projectile at several points along its path, assuming (a) the projectile is launched horizontally and (b) the projectile is launched at an angle θ with the horizontal.

(a)

To determine
Construct a motion diagram showing the velocity and acceleration at different points along the projectile path, when the projectile is launched horizontally.

Explanation

The velocity of a projectile motion is always tangential to the path followed by the projectile. The acceleration will always be directed downwards.

Conclusion:

When the projectile is launched horizontally, initially, the velocity is horizontal and thus, is perpendicular to the acceleration...

(b)

To determine
Construct a motion diagram showing velocity and acceleration at different points along the projectile path when the projectile is launched horizontally, at an angle θ .
