(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Which of the following factors are relevant in determining the range of a projectile that is launched on a very large flat plain? (i.e. no hills or cliffs)

mass of projectile

initial launch speed

acceleration due to gravity on Earth

initial launch angle

volume of projectile

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

1. No, acceleration of gravity is constant, object falls at same speed with no air resistance

2. Yes, initial launch speed is necessary to calculate distance traveled, etc.

3. Yes? it is needed to calculate

4.Yes. different angles allow different ranges, 45 deg is the greatest distance on x

5. No, volume doesn't matter pretty obvious

Am I correct? I have one last try
