The Projectile Motion for Horizontal Displacement Calculator is an online tool that finds the value of horizontal displacement when initial horizontal velocity and time is given to us. BYJU’S free calculator available here gives a quick result within a fraction of seconds as compared to the classical method of solving the problem.
Horizontal Displacement of Projectile Motion
When a particle is thrown, near the earth’s surface, obliquely and it moves under constant velocity, along a curved path, which is directed towards the center of earth. Such motion of the particle is called horizontal projectile motion, where projectile term is used for the path of particle. Here, the particle moves along x-axis.
Horizontal displacement caused due to projectile motion of particle, is given by:
∆x = V0 x t
Where ∆x is the horizontal projectile displacement
V0 = velocity of the particle
t = time of flight
If the particle moves under constant acceleration, the projectile motion is called vertical projectile motion. Here, the particle moves along the y-axis.
How to Find Horizontal Displacement of Projectile Motion?
To find the horizontal displacement of a particle in projectile motion, using calculator, follow the below steps.
Step 1: Mention the values of velocity and time in the respective input fields
Step 2: Mention ‘x’ in the Horizontal Displacement at Time input field
Step 3: Click on “Calculate the unknown” button to get the result
Step 4: The value of horizontal projectile displacement will appear in the output field
Find the value of horizontal displacement of a particle in projectile motion travelling at a constant velocity of 20m/s and time of flight is 30 second.
Velocity of particle = 20 m/s
Time of flight = 30 sec
Horizontal displacement of projectile motion,
∆x = V0 x t
∆x = 20 x 30 = 600 m
