Projectile Motion

Exploring Engineering Fundamentals Logo
This module introduces two-dimensional projectile motion and develops the related equations. The path equation, horizontal range and maximum height are some of the concepts covered. Numerical examples, interactive plots, and steps to create MapleSim simulations are included to enhance the learning experience. The module also contains a brief explanation of how to incorporate drag in the simulation models. Keywords & Topics:
Projectile motion, free-fall, projectile path equation, horizontal range, drag
Main Topic: Kinematics & Dynamics
