A projectile is an entity which only has the force of gravity acting upon it. A projectile can be cast, fired, flung, heaved, hurled, pitched, tossed and thrown. A projectile can be anything as long as it has initial horizontal velocity that is not equal to zero which has the acceleration due to gravity. Projectile motion happens when an object projected with a force stops putting influence on the object after its launched, hence the only force being gravity. The trajectory is the path of the projectile. There are three types of projectile motion as the following.

Projectiles 1: When an object is dropped from rest at an elevation or fired from elevation with an angle of zero.

Projectiles 2: When the object is thrown at an angle from no elevation with a parabolic trajectory.

Projectiles 3: When the object is thrown upwards at an angle from a higher elevation

Each projectile had its own separate calculations and equations. Projectiles are a 2 dimensional because the motion of the projectile is all one. When calculating projectiles you must consider the acceleration due to gravity because that’s the single force acting upon it and assume that there is no air resistance.

When analyzing Projectile you usually are trying to find the initial velocity, initial horizontal velocity, initial vertical velocity, range which is how far the projectile has travelled, the final vertical and horizontal velocity, time of flight, height of flight, time taken to reach maximum height of the flight and total height. When looking at a projectile you are trying to find the properties if it in the y and x components. Projectiles 1 have a parabolic trajectory and the component of the x value for the component for the y value are the same. In Projectiles 2 again there is a parabolic trajectory and everything on the right-hand side of the path is equal to the left hand side. In projectiles 3, the calculations are similar once...

...Projectile Motion
Experiment # 4
Introduction:
Projectile Motion exists commonly in our everyday lives and is particularly evident in the motion or flight of objects which are projected from a particular height. The key to working with projectile motion is recognizing that when an object with mass is flying through the air, its motion is a combination of vertical and horizontal movements. Although the horizontal velocity of the object remains...

...Physics Assessment Task #1: Part A
Open ended investigation By Rex Whiticker
Projectile Motion
Abstract:
The Project motion of a catapult being fired is varied by a range of factors that affect the path of the projectile. In this experiment, the angle of trajectory, mass of the projectile and change in initial velocity of the launch, were all factors considered in the end result to investigate the properties of projectile motion. The...

into physics
Objective:
Our purpose for this lab was to observe projectile motion and use the equations of motion to predict the objects location in different instances of time. We used a projectile launcher and a ball to observe these properties of motion. The main equation used in this lab was d=Vit+1/2at^2 where Vit will produce the distance due to constant motion and 1/2at^2 will produce distance traveled due to accelerated...

...Projectile Motion
Purpose: Apply the concepts of two-dimensional kinematics (projectile motion) to predict the impact point of an object as its velocity increases.
Introduction: The most common example of an object that is moving in two dimensions is a projectile. A projectile is an object upon which the only force acting is gravity. That is to say a projectile is any object that once projected or dropped...

...bullet) is thrown, hurled or shot in the air, the object is a PROJECTILE (“Projectile”). The study of projectile is important because it must be realized that they are very much part of man’s daily life then and now. Whether man likes it or not, he encounters and uses projectile in his everyday life. Our hunting ancestors threw stones and spears on animals to kill them for their food.
In today’s sports, balls follow...
