The baseball, the bullet, the javelin, the athlete, and any object thrown up in the air are called projectiles. In this type of motion, the projectile moves in horizontal and vertical paths simultaneously. The horizontal and vertical components of the motion, however, must be regarded independently. The path the projectile travels, called its trajectory, is an inverted parabola. *
