Horizontal Projectile Motion is a special case of projectile motion, in which a projectile is thrown horizontally resulting in a curved trajectory due to the gravity acting on the projectile.
It can be analysed into two separate motions, a uniform linear motion on the x-axis and a free fall on the y-axis.
OX-axis: The motion is uniform linear with velocity Vx.The equations that describe its movement on the direction (x):
OY-axis: The projectile does a free fall.The equations that describe its movement on the direction (y):
At every moment the projectile's speed is:
The displacement of the projectile:
We can assume that the motions happen independently, either simultaneously or successively, with each motion lasting for:
