## How do you describe projectile motion?

Projectile motion is the motion of an object projected vertically upward into the air and moving under the influence of gravity. Projectile motion is the motion of an object projected horizontally into the air and moving independently of gravity.

**What are 4 examples of projectile motion?**

Examples of Projectile Motion

- Firing a Canon. When a cannonball is fired from a cannon, it does not move along a straight line, instead, it follows a curved path.
- Throwing a Basketball in the Basket.
- Sneezing.
- Javelin Throw.
- Archery.
- Water Escaping a Hose.
- Car and Bike Stunts.
- Golf Ball.

**What is projectile motion in physics examples?**

Tossing an object into the bin, water flowing from a tap, jumping from a bus, etc are all common examples of projectile motion which we encounter every day. Yes, well-known examples of projectile motion like bullets, slingshots, baseball, rockets are not very common in our daily lives.

### What are the 5 parts of projectile motion?

The key components that we need to remember in order to solve projectile motion problems are:

- Initial launch angle, θ θ
- Initial velocity, u. u.
- Time of flight, T. T.
- Acceleration, a. a.
- Horizontal velocity, vx. v x.
- Vertical velocity, vy. v y.
- Displacement, d. d.
- Maximum height, H. H.

**What is projectile motion in physics class 11?**

When any object is thrown from horizontal at an angle θ except 90°, then the path followed by it is called trajectory, the object is called projectile and its motion is called projectile motion.

**What are the types of projectile motion in physics?**

Projectile motion is the motion of an object thrown up in the air at an angle from the horizontal (or ground) with object moving under gravitational acceleration pointed vertically downwards, Now depending on the angle of projection, ‘ ‘ we can classify the projectile motion as oblique projectile motion also referred …

#### Who first accurately described projectile motion and when?

Galileo was the first person who ever accurately described projectile motion. He was the one who first broke down motion into it’s separate horizontal and vertical components (Web 1). Galileo even took this idea further with his realization that there was more than one force at work upon the projectile.

**How do you calculate projectile motion in physics?**

Projectile motion equations

- Horizontal velocity component: Vx = V * cos(α)
- Vertical velocity component: Vy = V * sin(α)
- Time of flight: t = 2 * Vy / g.
- Range of the projectile: R = 2 * Vx * Vy / g.
- Maximum height: hmax = Vy² / (2 * g)
