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

3 Part 1. Motion of Objects Projected Horizontally

4 v0v0 x y

5 x y

6 x y

7 x y

8 x y

9 x y Motion is accelerated Acceleration is constant, and downward a = g = -9.81m/s 2 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/s 2

10 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?

12 Trajectory x = v 0 t y = h + ½ g t 2 Eliminate time, t t = x/v 0 y = h + ½ g (x/v 0 ) 2 y = h + ½ (g/v 0 2 ) x 2 y = ½ (g/v 0 2 ) x 2 + h y x h Parabola, open down v 01 v 02 > v 01

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

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

15 VELOCITY v v x = v 0 v y = g t v = v x 2 + v y 2 = v 0 2 +g 2 t 2 tg Θ = v y / v x = g t / v 0 Θ

16 FINAL VELOCITY v v x = v 0 v y = g t v = v x 2 + v y 2 v = v 0 2 +g 2 (2h /(-g)) v = v 0 2 + 2h(-g) Θ tg Θ = g Δt / v 0 = -(-g)2h/(-g) / v 0 = - 2h(-g) / v 0 Θ is negative (below the horizontal line) Δt = 2h/(-g)

17 HORIZONTAL THROW - Summary TrajectoryHalf -parabola, open down Total time Δt = 2h/(-g) Horizontal Range Δx = v 0 2h/(-g) Final Velocity v = v 0 2 + 2h(-g) tg Θ = -2h(-g) / v 0 h – initial height, v 0 – initial horizontal velocity, g = -9.81m/s 2

20 x y Motion is accelerated Acceleration is constant, and downward a = g = -9.81m/s 2 The horizontal (x) component of velocity is constant The horizontal and vertical motions are independent of each other, but they have a common time a = g = - 9.81m/s 2

21 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 maximum height? What is the final velocity?
