What is Force?
Force is a push or a pull which is exerted on
an object by an outside agent.
Therefore: For every force you should be able to
identify the outside agent that exerts it.
Force is a Vector Quantity,
it has both magnitude and direction!

Projectile Motion
Projectile is an object which is launched
and during its motion it is subject to the
gravitational force only.
The air friction is always ignored

This acceleration is due to the Earths Gravity
and does not depend on the mass of the

Acceleration
When the velocity of an object changes in time,
it is said that it is accelerating.
Average Acceleration of a moving object is defined
as the change in velocity per unit time.

Physical Measurements
In physics we carry out experiments in which we measure
physical parameters.
We then try to deduce the relationship between the
measured quantities.
We usually express this relationship in the form of a
mathematical equation, which w
