  • 3. In general, how would you compare the distance traveled by projectiles launched at angles 30 o and 60 o ? 50 o and 60 o ? The distance traveled by a projectile at 30 degrees compared to a projectile launched at a 60 degree angle, is much shorter or less than the distance covered at the second degree no matter the weight. And as for the distance covered by a projectile launched at 50 degrees compared to one launched at 60 degrees, however, is much farther than the second degree.
