The Projectile Motion for Vertical Velocity Calculator is an online tool that calculates the vertical velocity of the particle in projectile motion. BYJU’S Vertical Velocity Calculator not only calculates the vertical velocity but also it can be used to calculate the initial velocity as well as the time of flight of the projected particle.
What is Vertical Velocity in Projectile Motion?
When a particle is projected, then the only force working on it, is the acceleration due to gravity, due to which it tends to act vertically downward. Also, the velocity of the particle changes from its initial value. This motion is called vertical projectile motion. Therefore, to find the velocity of a particle in vertical displacement caused by the uniform acceleration of gravity is given by:
Vy = Vy0 − gt
Vy = Vertical velocity at time t
Vy0 = Initial velocity of the particle
g = acceleration due to gravity
t = time of flight
How to find Vertical Velocity of Projectile?
To find vertical velocity in projectile motion of particle, when the initial velocity changes, using the calculator, follow the steps:
Step 1: Mention the values of initial velocity, acceleration due to gravity (9.8 m/s2) and time of flight of the projectile in the respective input fields
Step 2: Mention ‘x’ for the vertical velocity, which we need to calculate
Step 3: Click on “Calculate the Unknown” button to get the result
Step 4: The vertical velocity of the projectile will appear in the output field
