The effect of air resistance on projectile motion

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 […]

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, […]

Projectile Motion Numericals class 11 | word problem worksheet

Here we will solve selected Projectile Motion Numericals for class 11 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 published posts on the derivation of the […]

Projectile motion Derivation of equations for class 11 | Parabolic trajectory, Maximum height, flight time, Horizontal Range

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.
