How To Understand
Projectile Motion?
The Concept
Is the motion of an object,
that is thrown, and who's
course is changed by
Projectile Motion is hard to
understand. So that's
why we need to break it down to help us understand how to use kinematic equations.
Horizontal velocity and Vertical
velocity are not the same. But in the same way they are related.
Horizontal velocity, is the speed
and direction of the horizontal
orientation of an object, projected
at an angle through the air.
Projection Motion is an object
that is moving through the air. It's in action every time an object is thrown, dropped, ejected or shot.
The horizontal velocity
doesn't change, and stays constant.Is because no other force is acting on it.
Horizontal Velocity
The Horizontal part of a projectile's velocity, always stays constant. Unless it is
affected by air resistance.
Horizontal Velocity
continued again...
Vertical Velocity
Unlike horizontal velocity, vertical velocity, does change. So therefore it's
velocity isn't always
Vertical Velocity
The gravitational force, of
9.8 m/s², is always acting down on the vertical velocity component, of a projectile in motion that's why it's velocity changes every second.
Vertical Velocity
Because of these rules, an object's final velocity,or its peak point (in distance), is almost always going to be zero.
Projectile Motion
In Conclusion
Projectile motion is a bit hard to understand at first. But to solve a motion problem, you have to think about the motion's horizontal component to its vertical component; and that gravity decelerates an object at a
constant rate.
Examples Of Projectile Motion
Learning the differences will help you use kinematic equations to solve and analyze real life problems.
projectile motion is usually in a parabolic form
Some more forms of life's Projectile Motion...

Vertical Velocity
The reason that is, is because gravity's force stops the object, for a split second in midair, to reach a velocity of zero and then starts to accelerate downward.
To Show Projectile
We used the example of volleyball, and analyzed a video.
