Horizontal . . . acceleration is zero, speed is constant

Vertical . . . acceleration is 'G' downward, speed constantly increases downward

How does gravity affect the two components of projectile motion?

Projectile motion has two components horizontal motion and vertical motion. Gravity affects only the vertical motion of projectile motion.


What two components make up projectile motion?

Horizontal and vertical components which need to be treated independently from each other when working out either the horizontal or vertical motion.


Is the vertical motion of a projectile dependent on its horizontal motion?

No, the angle of the vector determines both the horizontal and vertical motion.


What are the two types of motion a projectile has?

the two types of projectile motion are vertical and horizontal


How does gravity affect the 2 components of projectile motion?

-- Gravity causes the vertical component of projectile motion to vary according to the local acceleration of gravity. -- Gravity has no effect at all on the horizontal component of projectile motion.


What force affects the vertical movement of an object in projectile motion?

The vertical component of projectile motion is influenced by the force of gravity, regardless of the horizontal component.


What components of projectile motion are not influenced by gravity?

The horizontal component of velocity is not affected by gravity. Gravity has an effect on the vertical component only.


Does the horizontal motion affect the vertical motion of a projectile?

Not if you can ignore air resistance, it doesn't.


What two motions contribute to the path of a projectile?

The two motions that contribute to the path of a projectile are the horizontal motion and the vertical motion.



How does gravity affect two componets projectile motion?

The vertical motion is accelerated downwards, at a rate of about 9.8 meters per square second. The horizontal motion is not affected. This all assumes that air resistance is insignificant, and can therefore be ignored.


How does the unbalanced force of gravity affect the horizontal and vertical velocities of an object in projectile motion?

well...projectile motion is made of two different motions, or movements- horizontal movement and vertical movement so... i guess that it


Discuss the motion of projectile?

First, yours is not a question. Second, there are many questions and answers on this site that discuss projectile motion in one plane. They talk about parabolic trajectory and horizontal and vertical components of displacement, velocity and acceleration.



How does gravity affect horizontal motion and vertical motion of projectile motion?

Ignoring air resistance, gravity has no effect at all on horizontal motion, but imparts a downward acceleration of 9.8 meters (32.2 feet) per second2 on the vertical motion.


What type of motion describes the horizontal component of a projectile?

The type of motion that describes the horizontal component of a projectile is horizontal projectile motion. It is influenced by the downward force of gravity.


Why is archery a projectile motion?

If any object is given a horizontal push, then it moves under the gravitational pull [vertical]. This combined motions leads to projectile motion. Same way archery too is projectile motion



When air resistance does not affect the motion of a projectile its horizontal and vertical components of velocity remain constant?

Only the horizontal component remains constant in this case. The vertical component changes at a rate of about 9.8 meters/second2 (assuming normal Earth gravity).


For projectile motion what quantities are constant?

-- horizontal component of velocity -- horizontal component of acceleration (zero) -- vertical component of acceleration (g)


What is the difference between horizontal and vertical motion?

Our jumping is a vertical motion, while walking is a horizontal motion. Exercises are done by both horizontal and vertical motion.


How does the unbalaced force of gravity affect the horizontal and vertical velocities of an object in projectile motion?

Unbalanced force of gravity will not have any effect on horizontal component but makes a variation in the vertical component


How does gravity affect two componets of projectile motion?

Divide the motion into a horizontal and a vertical component. The horizontal component won't be affected by gravity. The vertical component will get a downward acceleration of 9.8 meters per second per second.


Is projectile motion a circular motion?

No. Neglecting air resistance, the projectile follows a parabola. The horizontal distance is proportional to 'time', and the vertical distance is proportional to 'time squared'. This is exactly the description of a parabola.


What are horizontal motion and vertical motion?

horizontal is side to side vertical is up and down
