General Physics 9/8/2010 A. Brahmia 1 KINEMATICS IN TWO DIMENSION Projectile Motion – Projectile motion is the motion of an object fired at an angle with the horizontal. – This motion can be discussed by analyzing the horizontal component of the objects motion independently of the vertical component of motion. cos 0 0 v v x sin 0 0 v v y KINEMATICS IN TWO DIMENSION. .. Projectile Motion. .. – If air resistance is negligible, then the horizontal component of motion does not change constant velocity motion – The following equation describes the horizontal motion of a projectile. t v x x
