Lesson: Vector Methods with Projectiles Mathematics
In this lesson, we will learn how to solve projectile motion problems using vectors.
A particle projected with a velocity m/s from a fixed point in a horizontal plane landed at a point in the same plane 360 m away. Find the value of and the projectile’s path’s greatest height . Take .
If a particle was projected from the origin on a horizontal ground with initial velocity m/s, write its position vector at time seconds. Consider the acceleration due to gravity to be 9.8 m/s2.
A particle projected from the origin passed horizontally through a point with a position vector of m, where and are horizontal and vertical unit vectors respectively. Determine the velocity with which the particle left , considering the acceleration due to gravity to be 9.8 m/s2.
