2.3 Motion in Two Dimensions

Projectile motion

The motion of an object projected at an angle to the horizontal level and subjected to acceleration due to the gravity of the Earth alone, is called projectile motion. The air resistance is assumed to be absent and the horizontal level is considered to be a plane and the curvature of Earth's surface is neglected.

Locally, the projectile motion can be analyzed as a two component motion : Horizontal component with uniform horizontal velocity and vertical component with uniform acceleration due to gravity of Earth.
