Projectile Motion
Learning Objectives 13. Explain projectile motion qualitatively and quantitatively as a special type of uniformly accelerated motion in two dimensions(CO1) 14. Solve problems concerning projectile motion (CO2)
V xo = V x V x V x V x V V V V y1 V y2 V y3 Projectile Trajectory V yo = 0
What is Projectile Motion? Projectile motion is the motion of an object in an arc near the earth’s surface under the effect of gravity alone.
Projectile is an object moving along a curved path under the influence of gravity. The path followed by a projectile is called trajectory , which is directly influenced by gravity .
Kinematic Equations for Projectile Motion V xo = V x X = V x t t = 2y g Time of flight to reach the ground Horizontal Distance y= 1 2 gt 2 Height of an object from the ground
3.3 Projectile Motion Example 3 A Falling Care Package The airplane is moving horizontally with a constant velocity of +115 m/s at an altitude of 1050m. Determine the time required for the care package to hit the ground.
