Help with projectile motion can be found at The Physics Classroom
Start with What is a Projectile and read and answer the questions for help with video analysis and the problems we will do.
Initial Velocity Components... so you found this using video analysis, or some other method, how do I find time to the peak? full travel time? range in x? peak height? This tutorial really helps!
There are other sections on the Projectile Tutorial that you should read as well. You should especially notice the large amount of overlap in equations and variables when it comes to different projectiles. The tutorial makes it seem like there are 100 different ways of doing this. It really boils down to understanding the kinematics equations we studied during Constant Velocity and Uniform Acceleration Model.
Projectile Motion Blast a Buick out of a cannon! Learn about projectile motion by firing various objects. Set the angle, initial speed, and mass. Add air resistance. Make a game out of this simulation by trying to hit a target.
Use the simulator link above, or the simulation at the bottom of the page to complete the following handout:
