Homework Help: Launch and landing point help

  1. Aug 10, 2011 #1
    The Statement is:

    A projectile is launched so that its point of launch is lower than its point of landing.

    I have 5 questions based off this statement, I know these questions may seem easy but I just wanted to make sure I had them right before handing my assignment in. I have a tendency to hesitate and overthink.

    When is the vertical velocity at a maximum?

    When is the horizontal velocity at a maximum?

    When is the vertical velocity at a minimum?

    What is the acceleration of the object at the very top of its path?

    Which will take longer: the upward motion or the downward motion?

    Any feedback would be much appreciated.
