3-D kinematics

  1. Feb 12, 2012 #1
    Does anybody know where I could find a list of 3-D mechanics of a projectile? I would greatly appreciate it :). Thank you very much in advance :)

    A projectile's trajectory can always be defined in 2D.

    The simplest way to do so is to project the 3D motion on a 2D plane. You can also resolve it into its components, but that can get a little tricky.
