Projectile Motion

Projectile motion is a form of motion where an object or projectile is thrown into the air. There is 3 parts of projectile motion, Angle of release, height of release and speed of release. The angle of release is the the optimal AoR can vary, the average angle release is 45 degrees but in so activity like shot put there average angle release is 32-38 degrees. Height of release is the higher the release the longer and object will travel. The Speed of release is the greater the speed, greater the height and distance the object travels. The activity we did was a rubber band activity were we had to flick the paper in the air. We had to figure out the right amount of paper to use for the paper to travel, We had to figure out how to make create the most speed to make the paper travel more further and the angle to release the paper so it can travel longer.

  1. Love the image of the football player explaining the principle of projectile motion! Very cool :)
