What is a Projectile…
An object that moves through
the air only under the influence
of gravity after an initial thrust
Give examples…

Other vocab…
TRAJECTORY – path
of a projectile
The shape of the trajectory is a
PARABOLA
The horizontal distance that the
projectile travels is the RANGE.

The vertical and horizontal
components of a projectile are
independent of each other.
What does that mean?

If 1 ball were dropped and
another ball launched
forward from the same
height, they would hit the
ground at the same time.

Velocity vectors for
projectiles…
Here you see both horizontal
and vertical components of
the velocity vectors

Working Problems…
When working projectile
problems, draw a picture, label
all information, and list all
GIVENS as either VERTICAL or
HORIZONTAL. (T chart)
Only time “plays both sides.”

Example) A stone is thrown
horizontally at 15 m/s from the top
of a cliff 44 m high.
a) How long does it take
to fall?
d = ½ gt2
t = 2.99 s
44m
15m/s

Example) A stone is thrown
horizontally at 15 m/s from the top
of a cliff 44 m high.
b) How far from the base of the
cliff does it land?
d = Vt
d = 45 m

Example) A stone is thrown
horizontally at 15 m/s from the top
of a cliff 44 m high.
c) What is its vertical speed
when it hits the ground?
V = gt
V = 29.4 m/s
