### Range, Height and Time

All projectiles follow the same shape path.

This path is a parabola.

Acceleration is constant.

Horizontal velocity is also constant.

Velocity and position change.

Projectile Path
Parameterized Curve
• The two equations of motion can be combined to give an equation for the trajectory.
• We’ve set the origin to x0 = 0, y0 = 0.
Height
• The maximum height occurs when vy = 0.
• This is identical to 1-dimensional motion.
• From the height can the initial velocity be estimated?
Range
• The range of a projectile is the horizontal distance.
• The simplest range to find is for a projectile returning to its initial height.
• This is linked to the angle of the initial velocity.
The time in flight can be determined by height alone.

The “hang time” is just this time in flight.

A 1 m jump will be in the air for about 0.9 s.

The range doesn’t matter.

Time
Different Heights
• Not all motion starts and stops at the same height.
• The difference in height can be found by the full set of equations.
• Let y be some non-zero value.
