Projectile Motion. Chapter 3.3. Objectives. Recognize examples of projectile motion Describe the path of a projectile as a parabola Resolve vectors into their components and apply the kinematic equations to solve problems involving projectile motion. Projectile Motion.
While running, the person is only moving in one dimension
Therefore, the velocity only has one component.
While jumping, the person is moving in two dimensions
Therefore, the velocity has two components.
The cliff is 200 m high
Vx,iComponents of Initial Velocity for Projectiles Launched at an angle
Find t using the horizontal eqn:
Δx=vxΔt = vicos(θ)t
