Hopefully I'm posting in the right section of the forum. I want to find out how the velocity-time graph (or any other graph for that matter) will look like for a projectile.

Because I want to understand the theory behind projectiles properly and I can't seem to find any answers online or in my books.

Will it be something similar to a cosine (since there is an initial velocity) but the shape will shift slightly cos of the initial angle to horizontal??

Once I worked out that graph, then we'd break down the velocity into vertical and horizontal components and then work out all the unknowns.

Then because we break down into components the graphs will be linear or something?? hence making it easier for us to work with and manipulate.

Any feedback would be appreciated.
