        Circus | Physics: Projectile Motion

        Jugglers know that if you throw a ball, a bean bag, or a pin into the air, it will follow a curved path. This curve is what naturally happens when an object can move in two dimensions—horizontal and vertical—at the same time. As the ball moves horizontally, gravity pulls down. Physicists call this projectile motion. In this unit, students will learn why any projectile, no matter if thrown, shot, or launched, will follow a curved path while in the air.

        Circus | Physics: Projectile Motion Video

        Jugglers from the Big Apple Circus provide a useful illustration of the principles of projectile motion. Jugglers know that if you throw a ball, a bean bag, or a pin into the air, it will follow a curved path. In this video, students will learn why any projectile, no matter if thrown, shot, or launched, will follow a curved path while in the air. This video includes a transcript.
