B If air drag is a factor, how will it affect a projectile?

    If air drag is a factor, how will it affect a projectile’s trajectory qualitatively? Its velocity? Its acceleration?

    If you think in the sense of terminal velocity, then it would prevent an object from going past a maximum velocity.
