# Year 12 Physics

## Module 5 | Advanced mechanics

### Content 1: Projectile motion

#### Lesson 1 | Analysing projectile motion

• analyse the motion of projectiles by resolving the motion into horizontal and vertical components, making the following assumptions:
– a constant vertical acceleration due to gravity
– zero air resistance

#### Lesson 2 | Deriving relationships for projectile motion

• apply the modelling of projectile motion to quantitatively derive the relationships between the following variables:
– initial velocity
– launch angle
– maximum height
– time of flight
– final velocity
– launch height
– horizontal range of the projectile (ACSPH099)

• conduct a practical investigation to collect primary data in order to validate the relationships derived above

#### Lesson 3 | Applying the equations of motion

• solve problems, create models and make quantitative predictions by applying the equations of motion relationships for uniformly accelerated and constant rectilinear motion
