Textbook Problem

As a projectile moves in its parabolic path, where are the velocity and acceleration vectors perpendicular to each other? (a) Everywhere along the projectile’s path, (b) at the peak of its path, (c) nowhere along its path, or (d) not enough information is given.

To determine
Where the velocity and acceleration vectors in a parabolic motion are perpendicular to each other.

Explanation

For a projectile motion, the acceleration is always directed downwards. For velocity, there are two components, one in horizontal direction and another in the vertical direction. At the point where the vertical component of the velocity is zero, there will only be the horizontal component and it will be perpendicular to the downward directed acceleration...
