Types of projectile motion with equations,examples and problems

What is a projectile? A body thrown at a some angle θ above or below the horizontal such that (0 < θ < π/2) and moves freely under the action of gravity is called projectile. Definition “Projectile motion is two dimensional motion under constant acceleration.”or When a body is thrown vertically upward then it follows a curved path such a motion of body is called ...

kinematic equations of motion derivation with problems

5 kinematic equations

Kinematic equations Kinematics is the branch of mechanics dealing with the motion of bodies without reference to mass or force.There are three basic equations of motion for bodies moving with uniform acceleration.These equations relate initial velocity,final velocity,acceleration,time and distance covered by a moving body.To simplify the derivation of these equations,we assume that the motion is along a straight line.Hence,we consider ...

acceleration:definition,formula,examples and problems

What is acceleration in physics? “Acceleration is defined as the rate of change of velocity of a body.”In many cases the velocity of a body changes  due to a change either in its magnitude or direction or both.The change in the velocity of a body causes acceleration in it.If an object is moving at a constant speed but changes its ...

Average velocity formula with examples

Velocity is defined as:”The rate of displacement of a body is called its velocity.”The velocity tells us not only the speed of a body but also the direction along which the body is moving.Velocity of a body is a vector quantity.It is equal to the displacement of a body in unit time.And is represented as:           ...

what are the different types of sources of energy?

  “Energy is the ability of a body to do work.”It is  present everywhere in sunlight,water,wind,plants,animals etc..It is required for walking, reading and playing.Energy does makes things for us like makes toast,plays music etc..A good source of energy would be the one which would: Do a large amount of work per unit volume or mass. Be easily be accessible Be ...
