Homework Help: physics

Posted by Katrina on Wednesday, November 29, 2006 at 7:03pm.

i dont understand the projectile motion...my teacher said...it's a motion of a body confined to a vertical plane, perpendicular to Earth's surface...
I dont get it, can anyone explain to me clearly????
plzzzzz....THX!!!!

If your teacher said that, she was wrong. I doubt if she said exactly that.

Projectile motion is the study of the motion a projectile takes under the influence of gravity. Gravity makes things fall to the earth, including projectiles. However, if a projectile had any amount of horizontal motion, it goes horizontally while falling, making a parabolic path.
