Is a projectile flying through the air accelerating? if yes, why?


Question asked by: jadamss

Asked on: 24 Nov 2008

Acceleration is defined as the change in velocity divided by the time taken to complete the motion. In projectile there is initial velocity ,U, which changes to to the final velocity and in projectile the final velocity is a constant ,0. Since the velocity changed from U to 0 for certain period of time ,T, the acceleration is obtainable.
