Given the equation of projectile motion and necessary values,
find the focus and directrix of the path of the projectile
(parabola).
Assume a ball is thrown with a velocity of 65 ft/sec at an angle of
T = tan11 (3/4). Assume that the gravitational force is g = 32
ft/sec 2.
Equations of a projectile in
motion:
X = V 0 cos (T) T 1
Y= V 0 sin (T) T 1 2 GT2 Givens:
V 0 = 65 ft/sec
G = 32 ft/sec 2

Term Definition Asymptote A straight line associated with a curve such that as a point
moves along an infinite branch of the curve, the distance
from the point to the line approaches zero and the slope of
the curve at the point approaches the slope of the line. Center A point that is related to a geometrical figure in such a way
that for any point on the figure there is another point on the
figure such that a straight line joining the two points is
bisected by the original point. Circle A closed plane curve in a plane whose distance from a
given fixed point in the plane is constant. Directrix A straight line the distance to which from any point of a
conic section is in fixed ratio to the distance from the same
point to a focus. Eccentricity A mathematical constant that for a given conic section is
the ratio of the distances from any point of the conic
section to a focus and the corresponding directrix. Ellipse A closed plane curve generated by a point moving in such
a way that the sums of its distances from two fixed points
is a constant. Focus One of the fixed points that with the cor...
