What is Projectile Motion?

Features of Projectile Motion? 2-D Motion Parabolic Path Affected by Gravity Thrown into the Air Determined by Initial Velocity

Definition: Projectile Motion Projectile motion refers to the 2-D motion of an object that is given an initial velocity and projected into the air at an angle. The only force acting upon the object is gravity. It follows a parabolic path determined by the effect of the initial velocity and gravitational acceleration.

Trajectory (Path) of a Projectile

x y

x y

x y  Velocity is changing and the motion is accelerated  The horizontal component of velocity (v x ) is constant  Acceleration from the vertical component of velocity (v y )  Acceleration due to gravity is constant, and downward  a = g = - 9.81m/s 2 g = -9.81m/s 2

x y  The horizontal and vertical motions are independent of each other  Both motions share the same time (t)  The horizontal velocity....v x = v 0  The horizontal distance.... d x = v x t  The vertical velocity........ v y = g t  The vertical distance........ d y = 1 / 2 g t 2 g = -9.81m/s 2

Trajectory (Path) of a Projectile  T he path of a projectile is the result of the simultaneous effect of the H & V components of its motion  V component  accelerated downward motion  H component  constant velocity motion & V motions are independent & V motions share the same time t  T he projectile flight time t is determined by the V component of its motion

Horizontally Launched Projectile  H velocity is constant v x = v 0  V velocity is changing v y = g t  H range: d x = v 0 t  V distance: d y = 1 / 2 g t 2

Introduction to Projectile Motion  What is Projectile Motion?  Trajectory of a Projectile  Calculation of Projectile Motion

Calculation of Projectile Motion  Example: A projectile was fired with initial velocity v 0 horizontally from a cliff d meters above the ground. Calculate the horizontal range R of the projectile. g R d v0v0 t

Strategies of Solving Projectile Problems  H & V motions can be calculated independently  H & V kinematics equations share the same variable t g R d v0v0 t

Strategies of Solving Projectile Problems H motion: d x = v x t R = v 0 t V motion: d y = d = 1 / 2 g t 2 t = sqrt(2d/g) So, R = v 0 t = v 0 * sqrt(2d/g) g R d v0v0 t

Numerical Example of Projectile Motion H motion: d x = v x t R = v 0 t = 10 t V motion: d y = d = 1 / 2 g t 2 t = sqrt(2 *19.62/9.81) = 2 s So, R = v 0 t = v 0 * sqrt(2d/g) = 10 * 2 = 20 m g = 9.81 m/s 2 R 19.62 m V 0 = 10 m/s t

Exercise 1: Projectile Problem A projectile was fired with initial velocity 10 m/s horizontally from a cliff. If the horizontal range of the projectile is 20 m, calculate the height d of the cliff. g = 9.81 m/s 2 20 m d V 0 = 10 m/s t

Exercise 1: Projectile Problem H motion: d x = v x t 20 = v 0 t = 10 t t = 2 s V motion: d y = d = 1 / 2 g t 2 = 1 / 2 (9.81) 2 2 = 19.62 m So, d = 19.62 m g = 9.81 m/s 2 20 m d V 0 = 10 m/s t

Exercise 2: Projectile Problem A projectile was fired horizontally from a cliff 19.62 m above the ground. If the horizontal range of the projectile is 20 m, calculate the initial velocity v 0 of the projectile. g = 9.81 m/s 2 20 m 19.62 m V0V0 t

Exercise 2: Projectile Problem H motion: d x = v x t 20 = v 0 t V motion: d y = d = 1 / 2 g t 2 t = sqrt(2 *19.62/9.81) = 2 s So, 20 = v 0 t = 2 v 0 v 0 = 20/2 = 10 m/s g = 9.81 m/s 2 20 m 19.62 m V0V0 t
