## Projectile Motion

Let us Begin by Understanding the basics of the Law of independence:

– Law of independence

• Motion in perpendicular directions is mutually independent.
• Motion in a plane is resolved into two parts.

Now that we have established a basic understanding of the law of independence:

Important Definitions:

• A motion is curvilinear when initial velocity and acceleration are non-collinear.
• Acceleration has two components also:
•  Tangential acceleration: Responsible for changes in speed

Responsible for changing the direction of velocity.

– Projectile Motion(Types)

• Object projected non-vertically are projectiles.
• It follows a Parabolic Path.
• It is motion under gravity (uniformly accelerated motion)

Types:

• Horizontal Projection
• Oblique Projection
• General Projection

– Horizontal Projection

Combination of

• Uniform Horizontal Motion
• Free Fall under Gravity

• Oblique Projection

Combination of  Uniform Horizontal Motion Vertical Projectile
