Mechanics Physics12 Projectiles Mechanics Physics12 Projectiles Definition A projectile is an object that is ‘projected’, or is accelerated by a force which then is removed so that the object moves under a constant force, such as gravity.

Mechanics Physics12 Projectiles We can resolve the vectors describing the motion of a projectile into horizontal and vertical components. This means that we can apply the 4 equations of motion to the two directions separately.
