Unformatted text preview: basketballs, missiles, bullets, rocks, etc. In physics we assume there is no air resistance and assume it’s in a vacuum. The equations for projectile motion are: 2 1 2 x x y y o x y v v v v gt x x v t y y v t gt = =-= + = +-These are assuming the only acceleration is due to gravity. 3.6 Uniform Circular Motion This describes a circular path at constant speed. Although the speed is constant the motion is accelerated because the direction of the velocity is changing. Velocity vectors are tangent to the circle. The equation is Circular Motion is 2 v a v =...
