Two-dimensional motion

You understand velocity and acceleration well in one-dimension. Now we can explore scenarios that are even more fun. With a little bit of trigonometry (you might want to review your basic trig, especially what sin and cos are), we can think about whether a baseball can clear the "green monster" at Fenway Park.

This tutorial tackles a fundamental question when trying to launch things as far as possible (key if you're looking to capture a fort with anything from water balloons to arrows). With a bit of calculus, we'll get to a fairly intuitive answer.
