Introduction Projectile Motion:
Motion through the air without a propulsion Examples:

Part 1. Motion of Objects Projected Horizontally

y x

g = -9.81m/s2 y Motion is accelerated
Acceleration is constant, and downward a = g = -9.81m/s2 The horizontal (x) component of velocity is constant The horizontal and vertical motions are independent of each other, but they have a common time g = -9.81m/s2 x

ANALYSIS OF MOTION ASSUMPTIONS:
x-direction (horizontal): uniform motion y-direction (vertical): accelerated motion no air resistance QUESTIONS: What is the trajectory? What is the total time of the motion? What is the horizontal range? What is the final velocity?

Frame of reference: Equations of motion: x y X Uniform m. Y Accel. m. ACCL. ax = 0 ay = g = m/s2 VELC. vx = v0 vy = g t DSPL. x = v0 t y = h + ½ g t2 v0 h g

Trajectory y = h + ½ (g/v02) x2 y = ½ (g/v02) x2 + h x = v0 t
y = h + ½ g t2 Parabola, open down Eliminate time, t v02 > v01 v01 t = x/v0 y = h + ½ g (x/v0)2 y = h + ½ (g/v02) x2 y = ½ (g/v02) x2 + h

Total Time, Δt Δt = √ 2h/(-g) Δt = √ 2h/(9.81ms-2) y = h + ½ g t2
Δt = tf - ti y = h + ½ g t2 y x h final y = 0 0 = h + ½ g (Δt)2 ti =0 Solve for Δt: Δt = √ 2h/(-g) Δt = √ 2h/(9.81ms-2) tf =Δt Total time of motion depends only on the initial height, h

Horizontal Range, Δx Δx = v0 Δt Δt = √ 2h/(-g) Δx = v0 √ 2h/(-g) Δx
y x h final y = 0, time is the total time Δt Δx = v0 Δt Δt = √ 2h/(-g) Δx = v0 √ 2h/(-g) Δx Horizontal range depends on the initial height, h, and the initial velocity, v0

VELOCITY Θ v = √v02+g2t2 tg Θ = vy/ vx = g t / v0 vx = v0 vy = g t
v = √vx2 + vy2 = √v02+g2t2 tg Θ = vy/ vx = g t / v0

FINAL VELOCITY Δt = √ 2h/(-g) Θ v v = √v02+g2(2h /(-g))
vx = v0 Δt = √ 2h/(-g) v tg Θ = g Δt / v0 = -(-g)√2h/(-g) / v0 = -√2h(-g) / v0 Θ vy = g t v = √vx2 + vy2 v = √v02+g2(2h /(-g)) v = √ v02+ 2h(-g) Θ is negative (below the horizontal line)

Trajectory and horizontal range
vi = 25 m/s

Velocity Final speed = initial speed (conservation of energy)
Impact angle = - launch angle (symmetry of parabola)

Maximum Height vy = vi sin Θ + g t y = vi t sin Θ + ½ g t2
At maximum height vy = 0 0 = vi sin Θ + g tup hmax = vi t upsin Θ + ½ g tup2 hmax = vi2 sin2 Θ/(-g) + ½ g(vi2 sin2 Θ)/g2 hmax = vi2 sin2 Θ 2(-g) tup = vi sin Θ (-g) tup = Δt/2
