•Motion is accelerated
•Acceleration is constant,
and downward
• a = g = -9.81m/s2
•The horizontal (x)
component of velocity is
g = -9.81m/s2 constant
•The horizontal and vertical
motions are independent of
each other, but they have a
common time x
ANALYSIS OF MOTION
ASSUMPTIONS:
• x-direction (horizontal): uniform motion
• y-direction (vertical): accelerated motion
• no air resistance
QUESTIONS:
• What is the trajectory?
• What is the total time of the motion?
• What is the horizontal range?
• What is the final velocity?

Solve for Δt: h

Δt = √ 2h/(-g)

Δt = √ 2h/(9.81ms-2)

only on the initial height, h x

VELOCITY

v = √vx 2 + vy 2

tg Θ = v / v = g t / v

FINAL VELOCITY

vx = v0

Δt = √ 2h/(-g) Θ tg Θ = g Δt / v0
vy = g t
v = -(-g)√2h/(-g) / v0
v = √vx 2 + vy 2
= -√2h(-g) / v0
v = √v02+g2(2h /(-g))
Θ is negative
v=√ v02+ 2h(-g) (below the
horizontal line)
