Term
 In the absence of air resistance, why does the horizontal component of velocity for a projectile remain constant while the vertical component changes?
Definition
 Because the horizontal component has no forces while the vertical component has a force of gravity that increases the directions.
Term
 How does the downward component of the motion of a projectile compare with the motion of free fall?
Definition
 They are equal (The vertical component of velocity is the same as freefall.)
Term
