Projectile Motion Notes Projectile: any object that moves through the air or through space under the influence of gravity

Range: the horizontal distance a projectile travels

Height: the vertical distance a projectile travels

Horizontal velocity: constant, because no force acts horizontally

Vertical velocity: changes, due to force of gravity

Horizontal acceleration: none

Vertical acceleration: acceleration of gravity

For horizontal launches: initial vertical velocity is zero

For angled launches: break up initial velocity into horizontal and vertical pieces

For vertical launches: initial horizontal velocity is zero; object only moves up and down
