How do you calculate the z velocity given a theta and initial velocity. Is it possible or will it be some constant, I assume?
string theta = "45.0 degrees";
string initialVelocity = "10 m/s";
string velcoityInZ;
string velocityInY;
string velcotyInX;

I know how to calculate it in X and Y but I think in Z it would be constant. Just making sure if this assumption is correct? [Edited by - Concentrate on November 8, 2009 11:42:43 AM]

Your assumption is correct. If there is only one angle given, then the output will lie in a single plane. It sounds like you've chosen the xy plane and therefore yes, z will be constant.
