This topic is part of the HSC Mathematics Extension 1 syllabus under the topic Vectors: Projectile Motion.
Let’s understand the concept of projectile motion, and model and analyse a projectile’s path assuming that:
- The projectile is a point
- The force due to air resistance is negligible
- The only force acting on the projectile is the constant force due to gravity, assuming that the projectile is moving close to the Earth’s surface
This is all covered in the following video.
