please also tell me the formula I would use to find the vertical velocity if you know! PLEASE HELP!!!
If a "projectile" (e.g. a missile) is launched with a given "angle of elevation" ( Θ ) it tends to follow a parabolic arc of motion.
The precise shape of the parabola can be deduced by vector analysis.
In the absence of any gravitational field (or other force), the projectile would continue to move in a straight line indefinitely, however, the gravitational forces cause the parabolic deviation away from the "ideal" straight line. . One way of tackling the vector analysis is to resolve the actual motion into a "horizontal component" and a "vertical component". . If the initial velocity vector is given by ν , at elevation angle = Θ . then the horizontal component is v cos(Θ) , . and the vertical component is v sin(Θ)
[ sometimes represented in "complex number form" as i v sin(Θ) where i is the square root of minus one - the ' i ' has the effect of shifting the vector from the 'horizontal' x-axis direction, through 90° (in the complex plane) so that it coincides with the 'vertical' y-axis direction ].

Vertical velocity is vfy
The formula i think will be:
a= (vfy-viy)/t vfy = at+ viy
Vertical Velocity is a rollercoaster...

NO!! for physics
