Kinematics in More than One Dimension Key idea: Motions in perpendicular directions (e.g. horizontal and vertical) are utterly independent. Thus… a ball thrown horizontally with a speed v, continues to move horizontally with v x = v even as it falls with an increasing v y in the vertical direction (due to gravity). Welcome to higher dimensional space: kinematics in two and three dimensions - Position and velocity as vectors - Acceleration vector – parallel and perpendicular components - projectile motion (a x =0, a y =-g)
