# Easy physics quetion

I know this is probably a super easy question but I have no idea what the answer is.

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):

- initial launch speed
- acceleration due to gravity
- mass of projectile
- initial launch angle
- volume of projectile

Thanks!

Mmm. Any guesses? You have to show you've given the problem some thought in a concrete way.

I'm pretty sure that initial launch speed and initial angle are factors. My guess would be that acceleration due to gravity wouldn't be since gravity is always the same. I think that the mass must play a roll - the more matter the harder it is to be thrown. And finally I was unsure what they meant by volume of projectile. If that it is talking about how high the projectile goes I don't think that would necessarily be a factor but I"m not sure.
