Projectile Motion

Jason Taylor


Projectile Motion is a form of motion in which an object is thrown near the earth's surface, and it moves along a curved path under the action of gravity only.

Three examples

My three are a football being thrown aka the picture, a baseball and how it is always moving in 1 direction, but gravity pulls it down, and an arrow after being shot how it goes down because of gravity.
Marvey'o Otey drills amazing shot


The ball goes in a straight line at the hoop and the only thing that affects it is gravity.

A couple years ago Travis Pastrana did this on New Years Eve. The Amplitude of this specific jump was less than 100 feet, but I couldn't find the real stats. The Range of this jump was 269 feet.
