In this post, we will find the effect of air resistance on projectile motion. We have seen that in the absence of air resistance, the trajectory or path followed by a projectile is a parabola and that the path depends only on the initial speed and angle of projection. But in the real world, all […]
In some situations, the use of conservation of energy can be a much simpler method to solve projectile motion problems than using the kinematics equations. Solving projectile motion problems makes use of the fact that Ek + Ep = constant at every point in the object’s flight (assuming no loss of energy due to friction). […]
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, […]
The acceleration in a uniform circular motion (Fig. 1) has some similarities to the acceleration in projectile motion (Fig. 2) without air resistance, but there are also some important differences between Uniform circular motion and projectile motion. Differences between Uniform circular motion and projectile motion 1) In both kinds of motion, the magnitude of the […]
This Projectile Motion Notes [PDF download] is primarily for the grade 12 or 12th-grade syllabus of different international boards. This covers the class 11 physics syllabus on 2D motion as well for boards like ICSE, CBSE, etc. This physics class note covers the 2-Dimensional projectile motion topics listed below. We hope, the students appearing for IGCSE, AP […]
Here we will solve selected numerical problems on Projectile motion and will also provide solution guidance. To get a good grasp on this chapter we need to solve some numerical problems, which really helps us a lot to understand the basics and use the formulas. Earlier we have published posts on the derivation of the […]
We will discuss how to derive Projectile Motion Equations or formula and find out how the motion path or trajectory looks like a parabola under the influence of both horizontal and vertical components of the projectile velocity. We will also find out how to find out the maximum height, time to reach the maximum height, the total time of flight, horizontal range, & maximum horizontal range traversed by a projectile.
