Introduction to Projectile Motion

In this post, we look at Topic 2: Vectors and matrices and apply vector calculus to motion in a plane, including an introduction to projectile and circular motion, as part of QCE Specialist Maths.

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

 

Projectile Motion Conditions

The above concepts are covered in the following video.
