## Main Question or Discussion Point

So my physics project is about making a comic that answers a question (for Grade 5 kids) while answering an underlying kinematics concept. One example question that was given was:

So I was wondering about a similar question: What factors would maximize the range of a javelin throw. I was wondering what variables or information would I need to do this? I am new at physics and I am pretty slow so please help me out. Things that I will be looking for would be the d_x for range. The angle it is thrown at, etc and I am hoping on using famous five equations.

Also another thing is need is that that if I use the avg. V_i the players throw the javlein at, do i use sin and cos with the angle to figure out v_x and v_yi.

This is projectile motion right? :)

Sorry, if this is homework...

Sorry, for asking so many question
