Unformatted text preview: 10.4 Projectile Motion Greg Kelly, Hanford High School, Richland, Washington Photo by Vickie Kelly, 2002 Fort Pulaski, GA One early use of calculus was to study projectile motion . In this section we assume ideal projectile motion: Constant force of gravity in a downward direction Flat surface No air resistance (usually) We assume that the projectile is launched from the origin at time t =0 with initial velocity v o . o v Let o o v = v ( 29 ( 29 then cos sin o o o v v = + v i j The initial position is: r o = + = i j o v Newtons second law of motion: Vertical acceleration f ma = 2 2 f d r m dt = o v Newtons second law of motion: The force of gravity is: Force is in the downward direction f ma = f mg =  j 2 2 f d r m dt = o v Newtons second law of motion: The force of gravity is: f ma = f mg =  j 2 2 f d r m dt = mg =  j 2 2 d r m dt o v Newtons second law of motion: The force of gravity is: f ma = f mg =  j 2 2 f d r m dt = mg =  j 2 2 d r m dt 2 2 d r g dt =  j Initial conditions: r r v when o o dr t o dt = = = 2 o 1 r v r 2 o gt t =  + + j 2 1 r 2 gt =  j + ( 29 ( 29 cos sin o o v t v t + + i j o v dr gt dt =  + j ( 29 ( 29 2 1 r cos sin 2 o o gt...
