B: Vector Kinematics in Two Dimensions
(Motion with Constant Acceleration)

It is expected that students will apply the concepts of motion with constant acceleration to various
real life situations.

It is expected that students will:

B1. identify situations involving the use of kinematics
B2. solve problems involving:

• displacement
• initial velocity
• final velocity
• average velocity
• acceleration
• time

B3.  describe the shape of the path taken by a projectile fired at some angle above the horizon if friction is negligible
B4.  determine from experimental data that the horizontal motion of a projectile is independent of its vertical motion if friction is negligible
B5.  demonstrate that the horizontal velocity of a projectile is constant if friction is ignored
B6.  state that a projectile experiences a constant downward acceleration due to gravity if friction is negligible
B7.  resolve a projectile's velocity into horizontal and vertical components
B8.  solve projectile motion problems involving:

•  range
•  maximum height
•  time of flight
•  displacement
•  velocity
•  acceleration
