Intro Physics Resources for Vertical Projectile Motion

  1. Jun 4, 2016 #1

    I am in my final year of schooling in South Africa. For Physics, we do a module called Vertical Projectile Motion & Graphs. This section uses equations of motion etc.

    I cannot seem to find the online resources for me to truly master this section.
    The sites I have are of projectile motion when an object is projected at an angle etc
    I attach the few of the past papers to show what type of questions we get on this section.
    The questions are Questions 3 in the 2015 & 2016 papers

    Answers are provided as well

    What is it that you want to master about vertical projectile motion? Vertical projectile motion can be treated as one-dimensional motion with the coordinate axis tilted by 90 degrees.

    Pretty much everything. I want problem equations with 2 objects and one is projected a second after the other, as in the 2 questions I gave.
    I struggle with drawing graphs and understanding the meaning of choosing a certain point as reference.
    To me, this section is trickier than Newton's Laws, Work and Energy, and Momentum
