Comparing/contrasting three projectiles with different starting conditions

There are two cases that will be shown to the right. Assume you are looking at an X vs Y graph with the distances measured in meters and the time in seconds.

Click on the buttons below for each case, and then run the animation.

Questions :
A) Describe the motion seen in each case .. how do they differ from each other?
B) In Case 1, what are initial velocities for each of the three objects, and how do they compare to each other?
C) In Case 2, what are initial velocities for each of the three objects, and how do they compare to each other?
D) In Case 1, compare the values for the heights of each projectile.
E) In Case 2, compare the horizontal distances for each projectile.
