i found these 2 formulas on a web site and it says these are projectile motion formulas both horizontal motion and vertical motion.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

HORIZONTAL MOTION

x_{2}= x_{1}+ V_{x1}t

VERTICAL MOTION

Y_{2}= Y_{1}+ V_{y1}t - 0.5gt^{2}

in terms of physics do these formulas work out things that are fired from e.g. a gun etc.? i was thinking that are these formulas to work out the angle and velocity of the moving object?

any help would be apprecated
