M. P. Silverman, More than One Mystery: Explorations in Quantum Interference , (Springer-Verlag: Berlin) 1995, p. 129. Some idealizations, or approximations of reality, that we’ll use include: Objects with genuine size and extent are treated as if they can be shrunk to a point, becoming effectively a single particle . This approximation is valid when describing purely translational motion , but it doesn’t work for rotational motion or rolling motion . We’ll mostly ignore the effects of air on the motion of objects. This is true for the case of projectile motion
