PARABOLIC MOTION


Parabolic motion

Describing parabolic motion

Parabolic motion refers to the motion of an object

that is thrown, or projected, into the air at an angle.

Parabolic motion is a combination of horizontal motion

with constant horizontal velocity and vertical motion

with a constant downward acceleration due to gravity.

The vertical motion of a projected object is independent of

its horizontal motion.

The one common variable between

the horizontal and vertical motions is time.


Parabolic motion

Parabolic motion

Velocities vector of

horizontal

and vertical motion


Parabolic motion

Parabolic motion

  • Horizontal

    • Motion of a ball rolling freely along a level surface

    • Horizontal velocity is ALWAYS constant

  • Vertical

    • Motion of a freely falling object

    • Force due to gravity

    • Vertical component of velocity changes with time

  • Parabolic

    • Path traced by an object accelerating only in the vertical direction while moving at constant horizontal velocity


Parabolic motion

Parabolic motion

Horizontal

and vertical motion


Parabolic motion

Parabolic motion

Time of flight

is determined

by

vertical motion


Parabolic motion

The bullet motion


Parabolic motion

Angle for maximum distance


Parabolic motion

Angle for maximum distance


Parabolic motion

Projectile motion

Horizontal component of velocity is constant over entire path!

vx = v0x= v0cosa

No acceleration in horizontal direction


Parabolic motion

Projectile motion

Vertical component of velocity constantly changing due to gravitational acceleration in -y direction

v0y --> 0 -> -v0y v0y = v0sina


Parabolic motion

Projectile motion

At the top of the trajectory:

t = 1/2 of total time

x = 1/2 of total horizontal range


Parabolic motion

Projectile motion

Horizontal motion of projectile:

vx = v0cos a= constant

Dx = v0xt = (v0cos a)t


Parabolic motion

Projectile motion

Vertical motion of projectile:

vy = v0sin a - gt

Dy = (v0sin a)t - 1/2gt2

vy2 = (v0sin a)2 - 2gDy


Parabolic motion

Projectile motion

Combined 2D motion:

v = (vx2 + vy2)1/2

tanq = vy/vx

q = tan-1(vy/vx)

-90 < q < 90

Parabolic motion

Summary

  • A projectile is a body in free fall that is affect only by

  • gravity and air resistance.

  • Projectile motion is analyzed in terms of its horizontal and

  • vertical components.

  • Vertical is affect by gravity

  • Factors that determine the height & distance of a projectile

  • are; projection angle, projection speed, and relative

  • projection height

  • The equation constant acceleration can be used to

  • quantitatively analyze projectile motion.


Parabolic motion

Exercise #2:

  • A batter hits a ball at 35 with a velocity of 32 m/s.

  • How high did the ball go?

  • H = 17 m

  • How long was the ball in the air?

  • t = 3.8 s

  • How far did the ball go?

  • x = 98 m


Parabolic motion

Exercise #2:

  • 2. While driving down a road a bad guy shoots a bullet

  • straight up into the air. If there was no air resistance

  • where would the bullet land – in front, behind, or on him?

  • If air resistance present, bullet slows and lands behind.

  • No air resistance, the Vx doesn’t change and bullet lands on him.


Parabolic motion

Exercise #2:

3. A truck (v = 11.2 m/s) turned a corner too sharp and lost part of the load. A falling box will break if it hits the ground with a velocity greater than 15 m/s. The height of the truck bed is 1.5 m. Will the box break?

v = 12 m/s, No it doesn’t break


Parabolic motion

Exercise #2:

4. A meatball with v = 5.0 m/s rolls off a 1.0 m high table. How long does it take to hit the floor?

t = 0.45 s

What was the velocity when it hit?

v = 6.7 m/s @ 42°
