33 Projectile Motion Two Dimensional Motion of Objects
Projectile Motion – If air resistance is disregarded, projectiles follow parabolic trajectories.
Projectile  any object that the only force is gravity.Projectile Motion – freefall with an initial horizontal velocity.
Baseball Projectile Motion
Horizontal and Vertical components – independent of each other  both land at same time.
Assuming no air resistance  Horizontal Velocity (Vx) remains constant during entire path. The ball moves the same horizontal distance in equal time intervals.
Velocity in the vertical direction (Vy) – changes by 9.8 m/s every second.
X and Y components of a velocity vector can simplify projectile motion.
Observe Velocity Vectors:Vertical component changes (by 9.8 m/s every second) while Velocity in X direction remains constant
EQUATIONS ∆x = vx • t vx = ∆x t
Horizontal Launch Up and Down
∆y = ½ g • t2 ∆y = ½ g • ( t/2 )2
vy = g • t vy = g • ( t/2 ) where t = total timet= √2 •∆y / g
t = Square root of 2 times the vertical distance divided by g
Projectiles Launched At An Angle• Resolve the initial velocity into x and y components.• The initial vertical velocity is the y component.• The initial horizontal velocity is the x component.
Vx = Vx,i = vi cos θ = constantVy = Vi sin θ Use Pythagorean theorem and inverse Tangent function to find resultant and angle. (Vi)
Suppose a rescue airplane drops a relief package while it is moving with a constant horizontal speed at an elevated height. Assuming that air resistance is negligible, where will the relief package land relative to the plane?
a. below the plane and behind it. b. directly below the plane c. below the plane and ahead of it
