Vectors- Introduction to Projectile Motion

This is part of the QCE Specialist Maths course under Unit 3: Mathematical induction, and further vectors, matrices and complex numbers, specifically introduction to projectile motion.

In this post, we look at Topic 2: Vectors and matrices and applying vector calculus to motion in a plane, including projectile and circular 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.
