## What is the x component of its velocity?

Projectile Motion. Thus, the x component of the velocity remains constant at its initial value or vx = v0x, and the x component of the acceleration is ax = 0 m/s2. In the vertical or y direction, however, the projectile experiences the effect of gravity.

**What are the x and y components of the velocity of the ball when it reaches maximum height?**

When a projectile reaches maximum height, the vertical component of its velocity is momentarily zero (vy = 0 m/s). However, the horizontal component of its velocity is not zero.

### How do you find the x and y components of a projectile?

The magnitudes of the components of velocity v → are v x = v cos θ and v y = v sin θ , v x = v cos θ and v y = v sin θ , where v is the magnitude of the velocity and θ is its direction relative to the horizontal, as shown in Figure 4.12.

**How do you get VX and VY?**

- Horizontal velocity component: Vx = V * cos(α)
- Vertical velocity component: Vy = V * sin(α)
- Time of flight: t = [Vy + √(Vy² + 2 * g * h)] / g.
- Range of the projectile: R = Vx * [Vy + √(Vy² + 2 * g * h)] / g.
- Maximum height: hmax = h + Vy² / (2 * g)

#### What is the vertical component of its velocity at the maximum height?

zero

The vertical component of velocity of a projectile at maximum height is zero because at maximum height it has only horizontal component of velocity.

**What is the horizontal component of the ball’s initial velocity?**

The horizontal component of the baseball’s initial velocity is 12.0 meters per second. What is the magnitude of the ball’s initial velocity? 160.

## How do you solve for x in projectile motion?

y(t) = constant-acceleration motion. x(t) = xo + vox t + ½ ax t2 . y(t) = yo + voy t + ½ ay t2 . These equations tell you everything about the motion of a projectile (neglecting air resistance).

**What is the difference between VX and VY?**

Vx is the speed where you have the most excess force (thrust), and Vy is the speed where you have the most excess power (horsepower).

### What is X and Y component?

The component that pushes right or left is called the x-component, and the part that pushes up or down is called the y-component.

**How do you find the x and y components of a vector in physics?**

You can also find vector components by using the angle measured counter-clockwise from the +x axis. In that case, the x-component will always correspond to cosθ and the y-component to sinθ.

#### What are the vertical and horizontal components of velocity at maximum height?

The vertical component of velocity of a projectile at maximum height is zero because at maximum height it has only horizontal component of velocity.

**What are the components of velocity at the highest point of a body in projectile motion?**

At the highest point, only the horizontal component of velocity is present and the vertical component is zero.

## How do you find the y velocity?

Formula : V y = V y 0 − g t . The Projectile Motion for Vertical Velocity Calculator is an online tool that calculates the vertical velocity of the particle in projectile motion.

**How do I calculate average velocity?**

Average velocity is calculated by dividing your displacement (a vector pointing from your initial position to your final position) by the total time; average speed is calculated by dividing the total distance you traveled by the total time.

### How do you find the vertical and horizontal components of a velocity?

Projectile motion equations

- Horizontal velocity component: Vx = V * cos(α)
- Vertical velocity component: Vy = V * sin(α)
- Time of flight: t = 2 * Vy / g.
- Range of the projectile: R = 2 * Vx * Vy / g.
- Maximum height: hmax = Vy² / (2 * g)

**What are the vertical and horizontal components of velocity?**

The horizontal velocity component (vx) describes the influence of the velocity in displacing the projectile horizontally. The vertical velocity component (vy) describes the influence of the velocity in displacing the projectile vertically.

#### How do you find VX and VY?

**What is the velocity of a bullet?**

New York: World Book, 1998. “With modern propulsion techniques, the projectile’s initial velocity may be as high as 4000 feet (1200 meters) per second for some rifles and 5000 feet (1500 meters) per second for some large guns.” Bullet.

## What determines the acceleration of a bullet?

The acceleration of a bullet depends largely on the gun from which it is fired, along with the intent of the user. Pistol bullets generally feature a lower acceleration than rifles or machine guns.

**How do you find the X component of velocity?**

The X-component of the velocity = Vcosx. Where, V = magnitude of the velocity. It’s a matter of using trigonometry to break down the vector into components. There are so many resources out there on how to do this.

### How do you read a bullet ballistics graph?

On a bullet ballistics graph, you’ll see a pressure peak after a short horizontal line showing the delay between primer detonation and powder ignition. After that peak, which typically happens within a millisecond (1/1,000 second) after the powder starts to burn, the pressure curve arcs back down.
