Horizontal Projectile Motion Calculator

Enter the velocity and the initial height of an object in projectile motion to determine the total time of flight and total distance covered.

Horizontal Projectile Motion Formula

The following equations are used by the calculator above to determine the time of flight and distance of an object in horizontal projectile motion. As an object in projectile motion, the time of light is only determined based on the initial height and the force of gravity.

t = √(2 * h / g)

  • Where t is time (s)
  • h is height (ms)
  • g is the acceleration due to gravity = 9.8 m/s^2

With time solved for using the equation above, the distance traveled by an object in the horizontal direction can be easily calculated using the following formula.

x = V * t

  • Where x is horizontal distance (m)
  • V is the velocity (m/s)
  • t is time (s)

FAQ

What is projectile motion?

Projectile motion described the motion of a object that is launched into the air at a constant velocity and angle. The trajectory of that object is determined by these initial values and the force of gravity.

What effects the time in the air of a projectile?

The y component of the velocity is the only factor that determines time in the air since gravity works in the y direction.
