The trajectory of a ball dropped from a person on a moving cart will be modelled using both x-position vs. time graphs and y-position vs. time graphs. The scenario will be analyzed from the point of view of an observer on the cart and on the ground.

What do the velocity-time and acceleration-time graphs look like for a cannon ball launched from a moving cart? This scenario will be analyzed by breaking down both velocity and acceleration into vertical and horizontal components.

Velocity will be separated into vertical and horizontal components in order to analyze the factors that influence the trajectory of a cannonball. The questions are based off the following PhET simulation, which can be used to double check answers: http://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulation/projectile-motion
