Here we will Prove that projectile motion is parabolic (class 11). To do this we need to derive the Projectile Motion Path Equation (or Projectile trajectory equation) first.

What is Projectile Motion?
A projectile is an object in flight after being projected or thrown and this motion is called Projectile Motion. For example, the motions of a cricket ball, or baseball.
Maximum height of Projectile formula
In this post, we will focus on the formula to find the maximum height traversed by a projectile. Then we will derive this as well.
Projectile Motion Formula class 11
This post on Projectile Motion Formula for class 11 presents a set of formulas that describe a projectile motion that is parabolic in nature and helps to find out important motion parameters as well. Let’s find out those formulas one by one, along with a brief idea for each formula.
Equation of Trajectory of a Projectile
The equation of the trajectory of a projectile shows that this trajectory path represents a parabola. This means that a projectile follows a parabolic path.
Range of Projectile formula
The range (Horizontal Range) of a projectile is defined as the horizontal distance between the point it touches the ground and the point of projection. Now, let’s find the Range of the Projectile formula.
Projectile Motion Equations
Here, is a list of projectile motion equations. This list includes the equation of projectile motion path, and other important equations like time to reach maximum height, maximum height, horizontal range, max horizontal range, displacement, etc.
