Horizontal Projection


Students learn how to analyze horizontal projectile motion, such as a ball rolling off a horizontal surface.

Later, as learning progresses, students explore key concepts including the horizontal and vertical components of velocity, the effect of gravity, and how these factors influence the range, trajectory, and displacement of the projectile.

Students apply these principles to solve real-world problems. The teacher guides them through three examples: first, calculating the flight duration and landing distance of a ball rolled off a cliff; second, determining the fall time and horizontal travel of an arrow shot from a tower; and third, computing the time to fall, horizontal distance covered, and final speed of an object projected from a building.
