# Projectile Motion Formulas in a List

Last updated on May 16th, 2023 at 10:07 am

In the next section, we will list down the Projectile Motion Formulas or equations. (Projectile trajectory equation & other formulas like maximum height and horizontal range of the projectile, time of flight, etc.)

On another page on this site, Find the derivation of Projectile equations – parabolic path, max height, range, & time of flight.

## Projectile motion formula list

Projectile motion is the motion of a projected object in flight which is a result of two separate simultaneously occurring components of motion. One component of motion is without any acceleration along a horizontal direction and the other is along the vertical direction with constant acceleration due to the force of gravity (considering air resistance as negligible).

The initial velocity component along X-axis = V0x = V0 cosθ and the initial velocity component along Y-axis = V0y = V0sinθ.
(Air resistance is taken as negligible). g is the acceleration due to gravity.

### Projectile Motion Solved Example

A ball is thrown at a speed of 28 m/s in a direction 30 degrees above the horizontal. Calculate (a) the maximum height (b) the time taken by the ball to return to the same level (c) the distance from the thrower to the point where the ball returns to the same level.
