# Vectors: Motion of a Projectile

This topic is part of the HSC Mathematics Extension 1 syllabus under the topic Vectors: Projectile Motion. Now we should understand the concepts of projectile motion, we can explore representing it using vectors. To do this we will model the motion of a projectile as a particle moving with constant acceleration due to gravity and derive the equations of motion of a projectile:

• Represent using vectors
• Recognise that the horizontal and vertical components of the motion of a projectile can be represented by horizontal and vertical vectors
• Derive the horizontal and vertical equations
• Understand and explain the limitations of this model
