## Horizontally Launched Projectiles - Problem-Solving - Physics

A projectile is any body that is thrown or projected. The projectile motion has two elements: the horizontal projectile motion and the vertical projectile motion. The path of a projectile object and the projectile motion is captured and illustrated in the diagram below. The formula of a projectile motion often used in high school projectile motion problems in physics is given below.
Consider a projectile launched from 0 (in the projectile motion diagram above) with the initial velocity of magnitude *u* in a direction at angle *A *above the horizontal. 0, u, and A are shown in the projectile motion diagram above. These three variables are often present in projectile motion problems in physics and are used to derive the projection motion equation.
