A ball is launched at an angle of 60 degrees above the horizontal, and the vertical position of the ball is recorded at various points in time in the table shown, assuming the ball was at a height of 0 at time t = 0.

a. Draw a graph of the ball's vertical velocity versus time. b. Describe the graph of the ball's horizontal velocity.
c. Draw a graph of the ball's vertical acceleration versus time.

a) & b) see video for descriptions.

c) The ball's vertical acceleration is constant, and negative. The graph will be a horizontal line at $-9.8 \textrm{ m/s}^2$
