()The projectile is a freely falling body.

()Vertical acceleration is 9.8 m/s2, upward.

()Vertical acceleration is 9.8 m/s2, downward.

()Vertical acceleration depends on theta.

()Horizontal acceleration depends on vi.

()Horizontal acceleration is zero.

()Horizontal acceleration depends on theta.
