I have a general question. If you were to determine the intial velocity of an object shot vertically into the air, how could you use kinematics equations to predict the height and distance the object would reach if you were then later given a launch angle? Does this mean that the initial velocity is just multiplied by components? I'm really confused. Projectile motion is clearly involved in the second part.. I could measure the time and height when I'm finding the initial velocity, but then what am I using to find height and range at a given angle? Please help without subtlety! Pleease!
