This is part of the HSC Physics Syllabus Module 5: Advanced Mechanics.
Projectile motion is broken up into two forms of motion. These forms of motion are in the x (left and right) and y (up and down) direction.
Before we get into the syllabus, here’s a quick refresher on linear equations!
Horizontal and vertical components
Let’s analyse the motion of projectiles by resolving the motion into horizontal and vertical components.
Projectile Motion equations
Now let’s derive the equations for projectile motion.
