horizontal projectile

Horizontal projectiles – formulas with derivation

Horizontal projectiles are directed straight out as a horizontal projection. It undergoes downward acceleration under the influence of gravity and hence gets an increasing downward velocity. At the same time, the horizontal velocity of the horizontal projectile remains the same throughout the flight as there are no forces in the horizontal direction if you ignore […]

Vertical Projectiles vs. Horizontal Projectiles – a detailed comparison

In this post, we will make a comparison between Vertical projectiles and Horizontal projectiles. When an object is thrown or projected, into the air it’s named a projectile. Essentially, such a projectile (rock, football, bullet, golf ball, or whatever) could be directed straight upward as a vertical projection, directed straight out as a horizontal projection, […]
