Gravity pulls the projectile downwards. Assuming for simplicity that air resistance is insignificant, the horizontal speed remains constant, while vertically, the projectile accelerates downwards.
The projectile travels horizontally at a constant speed (v) over a horizontal distance (s) with time (t) such that s = vt. But the projectile travels downward at a varying speed because of gravity acceleration (g)) over a vertical distance (s) with time (t) such that s = 1/2gt^2 ( time squared). Because of the square term it travels in a parabola shape, curved downward
It is because it undergoes constant downward acceleration due to the force of gravity, while travelling horizontally.
The gravitation forces are what causes the path of a projectile to be curved.
The combination of an initial forward velocity and the downward vertical force of gravity causes the ball to follow a curved path
The curved path is called a trajectory
The curved path is called projectile motion.
it follows a curved path
False Because gravity is constantly pulling on the projectile while the projectile is trying to move forward in a straight line, the projectile will move in a CURVED path and fall down to earth.
A projectile may be the word you are looking for.
a parabolic path is a path that a ball such as a football or a soccer ball follows when it is kicked, so basically it is a curved path that a projectile goes
The combination of an inward forward velocity and downward vertical force of gravity causes the ball to follow a curved path.
Projectile motion is a form of motion in which an object or particle is thrown near the earth's surface, and it moves along a curved path.
Projectile motion is a form of motion wherein an object moves along a curved path under the action of gravity only. The height of a projectile in motion is dependent on gravity.
The path of a projectile is it's trajectory.
Parabolic path will be followed as a body is thrown in an inclined direction. This throwing is known as projectile motion. Hence path of a projective is parabolic.
The path of a projectile in earth gravity is that of a parabola.
The path of a projectile is called the trajectory.
An object in motion tends to stay in motion unless acted on by an opposing force. When you shoot a bullet for example that bullet would continue if it were not for the force of gravity. Gravity which is an attraction of one body of mass to another body of mass pulls the bullet to the earth. Therefore as the projectile goes straight and gravity pulls it down it forms the curved path you describe. The path is curved because initially the force of the bullet flying outweights the force of gravity, but as gravity continues to pull on the projectile it starts influencing the projectile with increasing force hence the curve.
Projectile motion is a form of motion in which a projectile is thrown near the earth's surface. When thrown, the projectile moves along a curved path because of gravity. An example of projectile motion is a sprinkler shooting water into the air and the water falling back down to Earth.
yes, because projectile motionis a curved path an object follows. SO if its leaping its ot going exactly straight.
